Vashti Bunyan, “Across the Water”

Post Author:

Bonified legend, cult classic and “Godmother of Freak Folk” Vashti Bunyan is back with a brand new track called “Across the Water” from her upcoming DiCristina release Heartleap.

Carefully contemplative and quietly gorgeous, this latest offering still has Bunyan’s soft, hypnotic voice swirling around simple, organic-sounding guitars, eschewing an overtly modern feel in favor of a billowing throwback vibe reminiscent of her 1970 debut, Just Another Diamond Day.

Intensely personal and incredibly intimate, it’s a gorgeous tune that takes Bunyan back to her roots as one of the pre-eminent stalwarts of experimental folk music.
