Ora Cogan – “Ground And Grave”
A Spill Exclusive Canadian Music Premiere
Ora Cogan’s music is deliberate medicine for fresh sorrows. Her voice is hypnotizing as a candle flame. This music demands our full attention in a tender way. Cogan’s versatile, haunted voice opens up a mystical reality; hallowed, forlorn and full of promise. She has let her curiosity lead her into many genres over the years, combining the intricate guitar picking of Americana with grunge and psychedelic dreamscapes. She has been compared to 70’s folk legend Karen Dalton and Angel Olsen, while definitively holding her own.
Her new album Shadowland, is expected to release later this spring and is a supreme delight. Her first single off the upcoming project Ground and Grave features the enchanting songstress in a cocoon of vintage strings, romantic influence, and hypnotic drums. Equipped with tremendous songwriting abilities Cogan’s delivery is thorough and sweet, accompanied with a melancholy spirit, she takes us on a captivating odyssey.
Quote from Ora:
“Most of these songs are about some kind of metamorphosis. Going through loss, finding autonomy and probably reckoning with feeling isolated while living in remote places.”
