Briana Marela is a singer-songwriter from Washington who recently joined the roster at Jagjaguwar. She studied music technology and composition before starting her career, and she recorded her forthcoming debut All Around Us in Iceland, with Sigur Rós producer Alex Somers. Sigur Rós collaborators Amiina added strings to the album. “Surrender,” the first single from her album, layers up glassy sounds in all sorts of beautiful ways, with multi-tracked vocal shivers and sighs and hiccups filling out the mix as much as any instruments. Listen to it below.
All Around Us is out 8/21 on Jagjaguwar.
