Under the dainty moniker I Am Snow Angel, singer, songwriter and producer Julie Kathryn will release her debut EP in February 2014. The first track off the four-track album, “Let Me Go,” showcases Kathryn’s production expertise, layering her smooth, expressive vocals over delicate synth-pop beats. Now, in an AudioFemme exclusive, have a look at “Grey White December” off the I Am Snow Angel EP. This track employs subtle harmonies and folky vocals, but starts with a playful, catchy beat that adds new warmth to the sound. While “Let Me Go”, conjures images of icicles and frost over windowpanes, “Grey White December” elicits a snowy landscape bathed in sunshine. Amidst the electronics, Kathryn’s voice comes through with a highly controlled simplicity, indicating an understated vocal power. Restraint works for her, adding to the track’s polish and serenity.
I Am Snow Angel evokes the best parts of winter–pristine, puffy layers of whiteness on top of your windowsill, the way everything gets quieter underneath a layer of snow, chilly nights with clearer skies and brighter stars–but her voice balances the track with compellingly soft, sincere vocals. Look out for the I Am Snow Angel EP next February. Until then, you can listen to the new single right here on AudioFemme.
