Via Tania and the Tomorrow Music Orchestra


Street: 02.24

Via Tania = Mazzy Star x Frou Frou

Theoretically, if you combine female vocal powerhouses with an orchestral backing, you’ll usually get something beautiful and robust. This is not the case with Via Tania and the Tomorrow Music Orchestra. Infantile and simplistic orchestral composition is paired with weak, smoky female vocals.

I felt like this was a middle school band practice with a Lana Del Ray meets Amy Winehouse vocalist, except she can’t hit her notes, then tries to cover it with thinly veiled effects and soprano instrumentation. While some might call this subdued, I call it boring. Pass. –Allison Shephard
