From the submissions: Pictoria Vark's "self-titled"

NYC and Iowa-based musician Pictoria Vark is fresh off her first 2020 show at Muchmores — as she hits the road for her ongoing winter tour, her self-titled remains a collection of sad and predominantly quiet tunes inspired by feelings of inertia, a soundtrack for quiet contemplation and personal crossroads. Written around the experiences of “being home, being young, quitting music, and falling out of love,” the EP is a venerable endeavor, punctuated by the artist’s dedication to radical honesty and a minimalistic instrumental approach, a succinct release for those seeking a fresh voice.
