SWEET SOUBRETTE – Almond Milk and Eggs / Making Do

Sweet Soubrette is available at Bandcamp, Spotify, Apple Music.

There’s an obvious uniqueness when it comes to the sort of pop songs Brooklyn’s Sweet Soubrette [Ellia Bisker] conjures up. Parts turn of the 20th Century Coney Island, parts Vandevilille circuit with plenty of whimsy and shadowy storytelling. Perhaps it’s this performer’s sugary voice coupled with her ukulele that brings the enchanting aspect to her brilliantly off-kilter tunes. Whatever it is, there are few like her and she continues to intrigue new and long-time fans alike with her tracks for and about the era of the pandemic and worldwide chaoses.

“Almond Milk and Eggs” / “Making Do”, both have their charm, melodies, and pulse working in mesmerizing unison. Soft, poignantly eerie, and earnest, these two tracks are authentic reminders of a time when I believe, we’d all like to forget, but since we can not do so…its fair to have a couple of captivatingly twisty songs to keep us enthralled.

Now it’s set in
And we move slow
Drawing out the days
Like the almond milk and eggs
We don’t think
About tomorrow
