Christina Ward - Rent [EP]
“Nightmare” Video Premiere – BloodMakesNoise
Christina Ward, Philly burbs native, announces the release of her Rent EP on April 16th. A homemade collection of songs colored by social distancing and daydreams about reincarnation, Rent is a compilation of tales woven into sweeping soundscapes, ethereal harmonies and all manner of digital and analog instrumentation.
Christina Ward cut her teeth as a solo artist, playing across the US, and in collaborative projects such as your kids and Our Bodies Themselves. This, her second solo EP, is inspired by the 90’s lofi sounds of early Beck, Mazzy Star, and the like.
“With skillful guitar work, tasteful touches of electronica, and layered vocals that cut like a dagger, Ward has created an intimate sonic space that we should all feel honored to visit.” – Johanna Warren | Singer/Songwriter
“Soft, picked out chords, a drum beat that teases and never comes in fully, discordant unexpected chord changes, all covered with angelic vocals that combine beauty and feelings of being haunted… with vocals reminiscent of Mazzy Star… more haunting, reverb-soaked vocals over a finger picked guitar track, more unpredictable chord progressions, and a simplicity that forces you to listen closely” – Joe Pugsley | BloodMakesNoise
