Oh Glistening Onion, the Nighttime is Coming

The debut album from folk singer Pearla explores human emotion and the anxiety of asking questions.

Brooklyn-based folk singer Pearla’s debut album explores themes of the curiosities of human emotion and the anxiety of questioning things. Pearla, Nicole Rodriguez, describes the album as ‘populated by eccentric creatures and quixotic scenes’ exploring her ‘takes on mortality, intimacy, and personal freeness glowing with an air of mystique’.

Folk and country elements combine with synths and instrumentals for a unique sound.
