Italian Folk Singer Violetta Zironi Enchants With "Lonely Window"
For years now, Italian singer-songwriter Violetta Zironi has been enchanting listeners with her dreamy acoustic efforts. It happens time and time again that Violetta crafts the loveliest little bit of love disguised as music. Last month, she released Scenes From My Lonely Window, a fleeting EP soaked in her signature softness.
The whole EP is a dream but today we’re shouting out “Lonely Window,” its final track. An exquisite blend of classic folk and stripped-back balladry, “Lonely Window” is a clear example of what Violetta does best — deliver a mesmerizing moment of folk made more intriguing by carefully placed details. Slow until it’s sweeping, “Lonely Window” takes its time, languishing in piano trills and basking in Violetta’s clear-as-a-bell vocals, but later, the soundscape picks up a few stragglers waiting in the shadows. Suddenly there’s the bash of percussion and the hint of strings and a devastating jazz interlude, an orchestral addition to a song already befit with magic.
