Singer/songwriter Yana is back with another indie-folk chant to nurture your soul.
“Will You Be There” is another collaboration of Yana with pianist and vocalist Liam Ó Maonlaí resulting in another song that fills up the atmosphere with weary notes of the piano/guitar converge. The song provides the listener with a heavy feeling, one that is always fertile for some introspection. Even the track artwork gives away the same vibe, as it displays a park in late-autumn.
Yana is singing on this song, while Liam Ó Maonlaí’s piano interventions contribute a great deal to it. Her singing is slow, filled with solemnity, and imposing. Her guitar work on this song is delicate, tying a knot with the piano chords.
Overall this is a haunting acoustic guitar & piano-fueled song that can keep you company during the winter days (and winter nights).
Yana is based in Brno, a city in Czech Republic which is probably most famous for the thousands of Erasmus students it hosts every year. If for whatever reason you’re not an eligible Erasmus student, “Will You Be There” gives a representative feel of what Brno is like during winter.
