A reoccurring feature where we find a song we love, and compare it to the original demo version.

It’s hard to remember Klarka Weinwurm as a delicate, spare song writer. Her debut EP, while highly enjoyable, was hushed and fragmented. There were moments - strings and pace were added, but never fully explored - that hinted at a bolder sound, but hearing her newest songs embrace crunchier, louder riffs changes everything.

“Evil All Around” is, said without blogger hyperbole, the best song Klarka’s put to tape to date. From the opening moment, the guitar picks and comforting chug of the strings jump out of your headphones, but it’s when those quick bowed notes transform to long slow pulled strokes and the drums begin to gallop that the song runs free. It’s an escape, one not often allotted for folkies or confessionals, and one that Klarka executes with precision.
