Current Music Obsession: Alina Baraz

“I like to present things in layers, so I just released one photo of myself at first, and of course there is pressure to take more photos and have my image out there.”
– Alina Baraz talking Harper’s Baazar

If you haven’t heard of Alina Baraz by now, you will very soon. Even though her online and media presence is almost nonexistent (from a visual/biographical perspective), big things will be happening in the near future. Her music takes listeners on a mind freeing journey combined with a celestial feeling that’s hard to escape.This upcoming 22-year-old singer, songwriter out of Cleveland, Ohio has a angelic like voice that’ll instantly put you into a relaxing trance. After hearing her music I immediately became a fan. She’s recently teamed up with Danish producing group, Galamites and recorded an EP called Urban Flora that’s available on iTunes, Soundcloud and Spotify.

The Duo met via Soundcloud where their biggest song “Fantasy” has over 20 million plays. Urban Flora can be played entirely without skipping a single song. If you’re looking for music that gives off chill, soultry vibes this EP is perfect. Whether you’re home alone or hanging with a few friends, Urban Flora will put your mind and body at ease.

Alina will be doing her first festival performance this May in Napa Valley, for those of you on the West Coast – and those of you who are diehard festival heads. For now, get acquainted with Alina, if you haven’t already. You’ll be glad you did!
