Snoh Aalegra: Expressive Pictures Of A Cinematic Scandinavian Soul

A mini album, a miniature painting, or a short film,

Whatever you may call this obvious Soulful and Bluesy RnB masterpiece,

These 9 tracks are likely to leave much more than just a mini impact.

With Billie Holiday’s Soul laying and breathing throughout this album

Snoh Aalegra has proven again she’s able to make you experiment a music that is Timeless,

With the release of her album this April 8th, Don’t Explain.

Don’t Explain, besides giving tribute to Billie Holiday, is the step we take for an escape,

To get away to places where there’s no more space nor time.

Moreover Don’t Explain, is the perfect title for this mini-album,

As the load of emotions s and feelings inducting to a fever stuck in overthinking mind,

Couldn’t be described with words and lyrics only:

That’s why Snoh Aalegrra is careful to create what she calls a ‘Cinematic Soul’.

The art cover of the album, offering vivid colors to picture every shade  the concept

The  hypnotic vocals and the meaningful instrumentation, with this suggestiveness of the orchestra, and  low tempos (sometimes matching heartbeat’s tempo)

Sts up a scene, help visualize some kind of an overwhelming experience…No I.D. protege (who’s also worked with RZA for « Emotional » and Common for « Bad Things »)

The Persian Swedish songstress is well surrounded, withthe best producers such as John Mayer, James Fauntleroy, BADBADNOTGOOD, Boi-1da.

This album, with its concept and all he richness that it brings, musically and visually

Deserves more than just attention, it deserves respect and admiration, and it deserves to be taken as a contemporary inspiration.

So much beauty in this music might get one a bit emotional…
