Vita and the Woolf is home at last in new record "Anna Ohio"

Jennifer Pague has found a cozy home in L.A. for her synth-pop project Vita and the Woolf, her new album Anna Ohio chronicling just that mixture of emotions seemingly arising and consuming the city like pastel blue smog. Each track in the new record has a distinct character to it: where a song like “Paris” uses swelling synths and string instruments to dream up fantastic voyages, “Confetti” lets crisp-clean electric guitar leads accompany Pague’s on-target vocals for a song with hints of nostalgia and acceptance. Such emotions are followed up and further explored in  fierce songs like “Home.” Strong beat-driven songs like “Feet” ooze Pague’s confidence as synth flourishes gush flowing colors from the track. You also get songs like “Auntie Anne’s Waitress,” which are light in theme but full and exquisite in composition. Anna Ohio is a story of new and old surroundings, big dreams, and a new rosy way to look at them both; stream “Home” below for a taste of the adventure and the memories. - René Cobar, photo by Erica Snyder
