Tucson’s Karima Walker may not be a household name in some circles, but that should certainly change. Her music is a sashay between Americana and exploration based sounds that cuts its own path within the independent music landscape. Now with a new album Waking the Dreaming Body announced and set for release in February, her lead single “Reconstellated” and its accompanying video should place her on the artists to watch list in the future.
The rings of sound that open the track have a found sort of tone while their looping creates an atmosphere for Walker’s vocals to reside. s the acoustic strums quietly underneath the vocals, there’s a calm in the intermingled tones that washes over you and soothes your senses. Almost like that of a shaman, Walker exhibits the kind of warmth and experimentation that makes true art so welcoming and inviting.The video of night skies and landscapes rolling by flows perfectly with the weight of the song’s presence.
The video can be seen above while “Reconstellated” is ready to stream on all services. Waking the Dreaming Body can be preordered directly from Keeled Scales ahead of its February 26 release date.
