When Paulina Sjoberg reached out to me to premiere the first single, “When The Sea Became The City (Sea City)”, off of her current release, Deja Vu Vol. 1, I could not say no. While the young Houstonian’s style is rooted in indie-folk and Americana, she has found comfort in blending genres including rap and rock. This may seem a little out of place, but in an international and multi-culture city like Houston, the blending of cultures and, in turn, genres is the natural progression.
Not only is Paulina Sjoberg helping to lead the her hometown’s music scene into a new generation, she does it with flare and grace. The debut single is filled with heart and true love for her city that demonstrates that the people of Houston are strong and will persevere.
The music is simple and understated, but is undeniably emotional. There is a truth and elegance to Paulina Sjoberg‘s style that shines through her unique vocals and arrangements. Each track is distinct, but there is cohesion that gives Deja Vu Vol. 1 a sense of completion like a television pilot. The show is satisfying, but you want more right now.
If you are looking for something fresh, new and different, you should get your hands on Deja Vu Vol. 1. Plus if purchase the EP, $1 of every sale will donated to the Hurricane Harvey Release Fund by Greater Houston Community Foundation. Great music and a great cause!
