Sydneyunicorns, aka Sydney Angel, is an American electro pop singer songwriter who I first discovered for the blog late last year. I was instantly taken with her sound, combining classical training with lush instrumentals and a touch of nihilism. Her latest, written during pandemic quarantine, is called Season One.

Season One has a dreamy feel, opening with choral vocals and a soundscape of ambient noises. Sydney’s vocals feel particularly vulnerable in track, processing what it means to be confined inside with only herself for company. As the track progresses, the layers of vocals build, reaching a dramatic, ecclesiastical climax.
It’s another beautiful and relatable track from an artist who I can’t get enough of. You can check out Season One below.
