Scandalously young to boast a voice transmitting such angst, Eva McBel (Zaragoza) proves to be a vocal tightrope walker capable of flitting between dynamics, always halfway between the perverse guileless naivety of CocoRosie and a muscular, jazzy tradition that connects directly with Amy Winehouse’s poignant and revealing kind of R&B. Her brand-new EP Some Kind of Portrait transcends her acoustic beginnings by incorporating an electronic touch that one might deem designed to cover Billie Eilish; perfect for one of the most charismatic voices in today’s Generation Z pop. #Folk
