KEXP Presents: Briana MarelaKEXP

In recording All Around You, Seattle native Briana Marela sought the shores of Iceland and the touch of Sigur Ros producer Alex Somers, who helped her songs swirl breezily among themes of connection, longing and loneliness, while never abandoning a state of childlike wonder. After returning home, Marela stopped by the KEXP studio for a soaringly emotive performance.
