CURRENTLY based in Berlin, singer-songwriter Yvonne Ambrée writes, records and produces all of her music under the guise of Panteon.
She’s gradually unveiling her forthcoming debut album with a string of singles throughout the year; and her latest release is “Nobody”, out today across all digital streaming platforms.
It’s the kind of electric alt.folk loveliness that you can freely bandy terms like “blissful”, “luscious” and “honeyed” in relation to; Yvonne’s vocal line gliding through a gossamer of guitars and organ; just a little woozy, just a little hazy, a waking dream of a tune. In another time, and another place, this song would’ve so called Elektra home, alongside your Buckley seniors and the like.
Written and produced in the summer of 2019 after moving back to Berlin from Brooklyn, “Nobody” explores the importance of self-love in a sometimes lonely world, hanging on that bittersweet hook: “Nobody cares like me”.
“‘Nobody’ is about practicing self-love and kindness. Nobody will ever care and know as much about your life and what feels like the right thing to do except you”, she says.
“It also talks about ambitions and how you learn to accept more than just one reality as time moves on – finding some peace with whatever evolves.
“Quoting Lewis Carroll here: ‘If you don’t know where you’re going, any road will take you there’”.
Panteon’s album, Open Fire, will land soon. Sounds like it’s gonna be a beautiful thing to embrace.
