Song of the Day #2,673: ‘7 Billion’ – Mizan

mizanOf all the interesting musical combinations out there, ‘Ethiopian Fiona Apple’ is definitely unexpected. But that’s exactly how I’d describe Mizan, based on this one song anyway.

Mizan (whose last name — or first name? — I couldn’t find on the web) was born in Chicago and raised in Ethiopia and New York. I could find very little else about her online, apart from the fact that her debut EP was released on Nov. 6.

A couple of other tracks confirm the Fiona Apple comparison. Her spare instrumentation, favoring the piano, and her emotive vocals suggest a definite influence by my favorite chanteuse.

That’s definitely a good thing.
