Shana Falana: Set Your Lightning Fire Free

Shana Falana: Set Your Lightning Fire Free

I can’t remember exactly how I came across Shana Falana’s music, but I definitely remember hearing something a few years ago that piqued my interest. This does the neo-dream-pop thing pretty well. The longer tracks tend to be slower and more spaced out, but there’s plenty of shorter, more uptempo, more concise tracks. The vocals on “Go” sound strikingly like M.I.A., suggesting what would happen if she joined a dream-pop band. “Anything” has a dancey rhythm and a sort of vaguely Middle Eastern sounding synth melody, lending an air of mysticism. “Know Ur Mine” is another urgent, uptempo sing, with repetitive lyrics about mind control. “That Girl” is another song with more overtly poppy vocals. The songs here do tend to get repetitive at times, but they have a solid dream-pop sound that emphasizes both the dream and pop sides. Older albums are available for free download at Bandcamp.
