Interview: Kristine Lirio (Nima) – No Fear Of Pop ›

kristine has been a real inspiration to me over the years and i can’t stop listening to her new record, so it was pretty special to interview her a couple weeks ago for nfop.

It’s something my mother always told me that her grandmother told her, that when you share or give, it’s without expectation, it’s because you want to— and that’s all there is to it…Giving, in my mother’s eyes, doesn’t create cycles nor does it seek gain or reciprocation.

Yohuna - “Para True” 

If you were first introduced to Yohuna with the excellent Clubhouse Split or Boring Ecstasy: The Bedroom Pop of Orchid Tapes, ”Para True” might succeed your expectations of the airy compositions typically made by singer-songwriter Johanne Swanson. Her contribution to Ecstasy, “Badges,” was consistent, pleasant dream-weaving material that ended on a few solemn piano notes. “Creep Date” and “Westerlies” offer similar soporific pleasantries, though neither offer the voluminous sounds of “Para True.”

Produced by frequent collaborator/fellow indie-pop musician Emily Reo, “Para True” fills out the white space that Yohuna often dances around, replacing that blankness with rich pop melodies and a spectacular beat. It’s exceptionally loud for Swanson, but she proves that bedroom-pop doesn’t have to be small and quiet to be effective—break down the walls with the pleasantries, if possible. 

The song, produced for the second issue of the German magazine “Cartouche,” can be downloaded at Swanson’s soundcloud
