Who would have thought that Lisa Oribasi would ever be heard on a song? For a long time, probably only the fewest. After all, the singer-songwriter hardly had a voice until she was 20 years old due to a serious infectious disease. On the contrary, she had to learn to speak again as a teenager. "Mustard Yellow" is therefore both a declaration of war on life and precisely the initial spark that the 26-year-old needed.
After a longer stay in London and a completed Bachelor's degree at the renowned British and Irish Modern Music Institute (George Ezra, James Bay), Lisa Oribasi retreated to her bedroom studio in the Swiss mountains for her first EP. The precursor "Mustard Yellow" makes you sit up and take notice: The fusion of abstract fantasy worlds, puzzle pieces from Lisa's past as well as a good pinch of alternative pop is an unusual song for such a time we are in. But it fits: "Mustard Yellow" gives comfort, radiates the feeling of freedom and forgiveness. If this is not a good omen.
