Since 2020 was basically a standstill for the world, many people had times on their hands to hone their skills and nurture their talents. On today’s dive into the indie world we are checking out “Here & Gone”, the latest single from the talented singer/songwriter Lhasa Petik. While she may embody the true essence of a singer/songwriter, Lhasa is already much more than that this early on in her career. Lhasa could easily be a hidden gem in the indie music scene surrounding Winnepeg, having already amassed over 1 million online streams of her tracks. Lhasa isn’t a one-trick pony either, as she is yet another musician that rocks the sweet multi-instrumentalist title. If she isn’t already strumming her guitar or ukelele, she also plays violin, stand-up, electric bass, and piano!
Throughout our expanded exploration of the indie scene throughout 2020 and 2021, we have heard plenty of indie-pop musicians come across our desk. While this may be the beginning signs of an over-saturated market, each artist we do choose to feature brings an interesting characteristic in their music that catches our attention. “Here & Gone” is our first introduction to Lhasa as a musician and her distinct vocal styling caught our eye. Utilizing her huskier vocal work as center stage, Lhasa toes the line between dark indie pop and lo-fi electronic to craft an entire experience for the listener. While it may technically be classified as pop, Lhasa has already found the fringe of pop where she can develop her following and thrive.
