Italian Songstress Violetta Zironi's Latest Single "Toast" Is A Soft, Sweet Ballad
In just a few weeks, Italian singer-songwriter Violetta Zironi is set to release Half Moon Lane, her debut EP. While we wait patiently, we're still swooning over "Toast," the sweet folk single she dropped back in December.
"Toast" opens with a blast of shimmery percussion before the twang of guitar comes in, followed by Violetta's soft, silky vocals. Singing lines like "Those nights where I was not yours / I thought I'd always be alone," she offers an effortless performance. The gentle folk instrumentation beats consistently beneath the vocal line, piano notes ringing out amid subtle country treatment. There's a magic moment in "Toast": when the production strips down to bare bones for a split second as Violetta manages a breathy falsetto. Throughout the track, she tenderly captures the innocence and vulnerability of young love, most apparent in the nonchalant, quick-witted lyric, "If you're just a speed bump, then I'll get over you." On "Toast," her smooth, lush voice joins a minimalist folk arrangement for a soothing blip on the saturated singer-songwriter radar.
