New Music: Thea Wang – Garden Song (I Prefer a Loon)

Thea Wang has graced our blog a couple of times already this year, most recently last month through her spellbinding track Word On The Street. Now the Norwegian dream pop artist is back with a new one, a story of pain and heartbreak. It’s called Garden Song (I Prefer a Loon).

By Graeme Smith

Garden Song is an understated track. Electro-acoustic guitar mingles with traces of electronica in a gentle backdrop that lets the storytelling of the lyrics take central stage. The tale that Thea weaves is utterly devastating. Rich with detail, it brings a moment of a relationship’s end to life and in sharp focus.

The track is the final single release from Thea’s forthcoming debut album While He Is Still Asleep which is set for release on 2 September. You can give Garden Song a listen below.
