Big Little Lions – I Know I Know

     This is not the first time that Big Little Lions has appeared on Vodka. This is a very fun folk-pop duo and they deserve repeat introductions!

It’s unfair to bring him up without discussing him just a bit, but just know this review is not for Nick Drake,…

Sinnober – From Afar

     Three months ago, Vodka was happy to have a new Sinnober single to review, Ophelia. It was beautiful and so great to have these two back making music again! Fast forward to today, and yet another single has dropped, From Afar (seen/heard here). Rather than just review it without any feedback, I really wanted to find out how things were going in the Sinnober world. I reached out to them and received a response from Natalie Brice to a few questions.  The questions and responses follow. I may edit…
