This Featured Artist mix comes to you amidst snowfall and wind chill and frozen sidewalks (oh my!). Have no fear; these songs are not gloomy, nor are they cold. Rather, this collection of songs is inspired by the warm tones and tropical imagery of artist duo Katie and Paul’s piece Paradise Found, and so it sounds like summer feels. Step out of winter’s fog and into the smooth sounds of sun-soaked Italy, California, and Peru, please! Ah, sweet relief.
Katie and Paul’s artistic process requires careful skill and attention (screen-printing on silk is no joke), which means each piece is a feat of technical knowledge and teamwork. Hard work pays off; their silk scarves and prints are lush in colour and sharp with visual contrast. This playlist is hopefully just as juicy and vibrant. Excuse me, while I find my sunglasses, beach towel, and a warm spot by the space heater.
