Michael Reilly Easily in my top few songs of the year, Imagining Life is expertly composed and performed, with a soaring momentum that never fails to catch my ear and lift my mood. Looking forward to hearing more of Jagt's music on her forthcoming album.

about

It's about falling asleep near the ocean, with a storm building outside that seeps into your dreams and swallows you whole.

The song is a gentle nod to Jagt's seaside home; one that expands her folky palette to include swirling electric guitars and a soaring string section.

This is the first release off a long coming album which has been made possible thanks to a grant by Carclew.

lyrics

Imagining life was easy,
You move with me, deep in the stormy sea.

about

Alana Jagt Adelaide, Australia

Alana Jagt's captivating rasp soars over her blend of stormy alt-country and folk-rock noir that's refreshing yet somehow familiar - it's the sound of a thousand lonely AM radios one Sunday afternoon but exactly where and when is a mystery.
