Basia Bulat

The true vocal quality of London-based baroque-pop singer-songwriter Basia Bulat is a cross between Leslie Feist, and Chan Marshall having a chamber-pop moment.

The A-side on her debut album Oh, My Darling is I Was a Daughter.

In the triple-meter track Little Waltz, out of heartfelt regret, the singer expresses her plea through a euphemism: stay for a while while our leaves are still green, please The singer's romance is prefigured by imagery of a dance floor, and love by the dance itself. Slowly twirling within a genre of pop dressed in orchestral satin, Little Waltz is an A-side. Also, the track was used in a Volkswagon Eos commercial.

Basia Bulat plays acoustic guitar and autoharp; she fleshes out her sound with a half-dozen musicians who provide ukulele, violin, viola, cello, piano and percussion. The band's sound can be described as a fusion of folk and baroque pop.
