Borka Balogh: Traces Of You

Hungarian indie folk singer Borka Balogh moved to Amsterdam a couple of years ago and turned some heads with her debut single Let This Be The Last Song. Her first EP Traces Of You finds her expanding her musical palette, with hints of vaudeville (Prague and chamber pop (The Disappearance Of Our Spotless Love) and straight up English folk (About A Warrior).

Her dreamy voice is always smack in the middle of the mix, with the musicians sounding like they were set up in a circle around her. The keyword for her music is delicate. Serious folk fans should own this.
