Orly Bendavid (and The Mona Dahl’s from her last album) gives indie folk a bit of a spicy cross over into country and chamber pop at times, but here in this live cut from the amazing Sofar Sounds YouTube channel (oh how I would love to visit and play there) shows off Orly’s talent when she’s on her own.
“Nostalgia” is her new single and it has a jazzy reflective feel to it. Just as well really – and we’ll be reviewing her 2016 album in May just to cover the Nostalgic theme too.
