Animalia

A Wave to Wash the World Away (independent)

Animalia is the moniker of Jill Krasnicki, a Toronto-based artist (by way of Tasmania) who made some noise last year with her debut EP, To the Waking, the Shaking & the Volatile. Her latest release, A Wave to Wash the World Away, reveals an impressive knack for crafting urgent folk songs complimented by flourishes of synths and percussion. The album’s biggest draw is Krasnicki’s voice, which channels the purposeful tone of early Sinead O’Connor but adds a worldly resonance that is distinctly her own. The entire EP is strong, but the opener “Trees,” with its tense glitches followed by string-swept solace, is the best indication that Animalia is a name you’ll hear more about soon.
