Clara Engel - Discover This Exciting New Artist

Recalling a different era (the Eighties) when a more experimental artist could gain inroads with a college rocker like me, Clara Engel shared a haunting track today.

There's a touch of "Second Skin" by Hugo Largo here, but the music behind Clara is more direct and less impressionistic. And Clara's voice on first listen reminds me, oddly, of Alison Moyet's but without the electropop bubblings around it.
