New Magical Ponika: “Nemuru”

A minute and 30 seconds might not seem like a lot of time to leave an impression, but Magical Ponika makes that run count on “Nemuru.” It falls somewhere between her more joyful cuts and something like “We Are Anyway Die.” It uses a bell-centric beat to create something apt for the nursery, but with a beat and (especially) a vocal performance from Ponika meant to shake anyone out of their snooze. It’s just a snapshot, but a good reminder of her skills. Listen above.
