In every aspect, Oropendola is a deliberate endeavor. Conceived by the talented Brooklyn-based singer, songwriter, and musician Joanna Schubert, this project takes its name from a bird native to Central and South America, known as the “golden pendulum.” This name choice holds a deeper significance, mirroring the essence of the project’s debut release, “Stillness.”
In “Stillness,” Schubert artfully explores the concept of a pendulum, orchestrating a musical journey that gracefully swings between diverse ideas and influences. The track, with its gentle yet potent allure, serves as the perfect musical companion for the winter season. It’s a song that accompanies you through snow-covered landscapes, guiding you on spine-tingling nights, and providing solace during chilly evenings.
