“Virginia” is a bewitching ballad from Nashville-based artist Monica Guardado. Solemn, retrospective vocals play alongside piano and gradual percussion, with chamber-pop orchestral adornments throughout, adding a particularly serene rainy-day feeling in the second half. The “I see your face in the full moon,” concluding refrain plays with entrancing qualities, the lush piano and interweaving instrumentation converging beautifully. “Virginia” hypnotizes with intimate production and consuming songwriting, a great showcase from Monica Guardado.
“Virginia” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of October 2021’ Spotify playlist.
