SONG OF THE DAY Raggedy – Brainwash

Image may contain: 1 person, indoorDescribing her creative process as “writing down all the floating whispers,” Raggedy is the solo project of a young artist based in Asheville, North Carolina.  Her sound fuses a distinct blend of lo-fi folk and dream pop and, whilst the name may translate as ‘torn up, messed up, nasty and really ugly,’ this music is anything but!  Though, by her own admission, Raggedy has described herself as a “melancholy, misfit, with a lot of heart.”

I refer to this artist as a young lady because, although a very new discovery for me today, there is also very little out there about her and I’ve yet to track down anymore specific information…but I am quite enjoying this unknown element for it adds to the mystery.

Raggedy’s latest offering is an intensely dreamy affair entitled Brainwash. Offering solace in its wistful, stripped-down melody, this song is as haunting as it is comforting.  A sense of lonesomeness hangs suspended in the space between hazy vocals where words gather, flow and gently merge into one another; their connection forming constant string of hushed mutterings. The result is rather bewitching….

See you for yourself and check it out above.  Listen to Raggedy’s other offerings here.
