Here’s a new one from Brooklyn-based, genre-melding pop singer Sonia Kreitzer, who makes music as Doe Paoro. The production on “Walking Backwards” is emotive, but it never overwhelms Paoro’s flexible, soul-inflected vocals. I can’t find no eyes to lock with mine, she sings, disillusioned, on the track’s widescreen chorus. “Walking Backwards” is off her upcoming Ink On The Walls EP, which was produced by Bon Iver drummer Sean Carey and Volcano Choir engineer BJ Burton, features Justin Vernon, and was recorded early in the winter at a scenic Wisconsin studio; it’s out in April on Middle West.
