ARTIST INTERVIEW: EDIE YVONNE


Interview


1. Cru cru Edie Yvonne, I already know that your Nicaraguan abuela got you into music, so I'm just gonna start by asking you how you're doing in these dark times?


EY: It is so traumatic and tragic. Thank you for asking. We have been reaching out to our friends, artists mainly, to make sure they are safe and their families as well. Staying home from school because of security threats is surreal and so sad. And I hope there can be change and a call for peace.


2. How can one find bliss in darkness?


EY: We have to hold on to hope and all of the friends and loved ones in the community reaching out sending messages of love, light, and compassion have been so beautiful and healing.


3. What's the best decade for music?


EY: Ah! 70s, 80s, 90s. I plead the 5th.


4. Name 3 all time indie pop classics that you absolutely love!


EY: I Follow Rivers by Lykke Li, Dog Days Are Over by Florence + The Machine, Paprika by Japanese Breakfast.


5. Can you rank every single record from Prince from worst to best? (in your opinion)


EY: Purple Rain, 1999, Love Symbol, Diamonds and Pearls, Batman some of them I’m too young to listen to.


6. Do you still love "Fade Into You" by Mazzy Star" or do you think it has become an overplayed song in the radio, cinema and tv shows?


EY: It is one of my favorite songs and it is definitely iconic. I’ve been hearing so many covers of it recently for sync which is why I haven’t touched it, yet.


7. Will you recommend us your favorite album from Nicaragua?


EY: My favorite song my abuela has sang to me since I was a toddler called Jicarita.


8. What makes you the happiest?


EY: My family and friends.


9. What is the biggest decision you’ve had to make?


EY: To start medicine or to have surgery for my vascular birthmark.


10. Would you still agree with the Pigeon if he said that finds "So Tonight That I Might See" (Mazzy Star) a boring record?


EY: It's a vibe. The mood and tone, I adore.


Review

In "Darkness Bliss" the young prodigy Edie Yvonne knows what you did last night. She gives us a melancholy and somber six-string acoustic backing that establishes a symbiosis with the constant organic percussion that keeps generating more and more tension. On the other hand, Yvonne's performance reaches emotionally potent moments when the music moves towards higher notes with more and more cathartic vocals. The perfect soundtrack for an independent movie involving young people trying to decipher the dark secrets of other teenagers, as in 13 Reasons Why, for example.


The Pigeon added the new single to his Indie Gems playlist on Spotify.
