beautiful, female singer, strange lyrics
March 20, 2012 4:34 PM Subscribe
I'm trying to find a singer/song-writer who I heard for the first time 3 years ago. She had a soft, high, very feminine voice, and the lyrics were entirely nonsensical (although grammatically correct), detailed descriptions of bizarre circumstances. This might not be true of all of her songs, but I remember, many times, thinking "god this song is beautiful... /wait/ what's it about?!"

I mean really truly bizarre descriptions - strange lyrics, although I would say they were typicaly more like a string of words carrying the beautiful melody than the focus of the songs. The melodies were lofty, and beautiful, fairly simple structure, complex harmonies for most songs (I think, I don't really know any music theory!). With, /I think/ violin accompaniment in addition to piano etc.
Any help with this ID much appreciated!
