Yohuna – Badges

Part of Boring Ecstasy, the 14-track vinyl compilation put out by Brooklyn’s label Orchid Tapes in celebration of their four-year anniversary, Yohuna’s latest offering is a bedroom-pop masterpiece. Badges’ arrangement (via Casiotone keyboards) is, indeed, sparse enough to let the lyrics matter, but, still, dreamingly encapsulating. Also, the chorus – which, according to No Fear Of Pop, is a variation of The Hunger Games’ Katniss Everdeen‘s quote “I am not pretty. I am not beautiful. I am as radiant as the sun” – is quite heartening, so we recommend you to keep this song on hand for the next time you’ll find yourself pillow crying for unbearable memories. Meanwhile, give it a spin below.
