Singer-songwriter Jackie Cohen recalls the best of early 70's psychedelic-folk with her withdrawn, honey-toned vocal inflection, a trend that has been proliferating in the last few years with artists such as Jessica Pratt and Amen Dunes. Her first single, "Bold", is a drifting slow burner that showcases her intoxicating country drawl. With the help of madcap Foxygen member Jonathan Rado, who helped arrange the song's twangy, strung-out composition, the sparsity of the track gives Cohen the opportunity to daydream in desirous pleasure as its gentle atmosphere caresses her over an overcast, cloudy haze.
Cohen is currently working on her first album at Dreamstar Studios with Rado, and "Bold" is proof positive that this fruitful collaboration could ultimately lead into something very haunting and alluring.
