Goya - Smak Słów

Band/artist - Goya
Genre(s) - Chamber pop
Origin - Poland
Album - Smak Słów
Year of release - 2005

Somewhere in history, the Polish have come to be stigmatised as being an unsubtle kind of people, but proponents of this generalisation probably never listened to Goya. Their name, I presume, is based on one of the more interesting painters in history, Francisco de Goya y Lucientes, which is what secured my attention on them. The band plays calm, elegant pop revolving mostly around piano/keyboards and Magdalena Wójcik's beautiful vocals, and I find it to be very soothing to my agitated senses! There's a sense of longing in her voice and in some of the better piano melodies, but the album is not really sad, per se. I guess you'll just have to like it, to like it.
