I was recently introduced to Queens native indie pop artist World War, aka singer/songwriter Biet Simkin, by a friend of mine up in NYC who fell in love after recently seeing her perform live, telling me I had to do a post on her asap. So, having a listen myself, I couldn't help but agree. World War creates endearing pop ballads melding a great range of influences from country/folk to synth pop, merging catchy, hummable melodies with somewhat heavy, somber and heartfelt lyrics.
She is currently working on creating new music for an in-the-works album, but in the meantime here are a few great tracks she sent my way for you all, plus the vid for the folky track 'Not Married'. Keep an eye on this one, there's a bright future here!
