Crown Of Thorns – Sonali Vij

Sonali Vij - Artwork with logo

Born in Delhi, and raised in New Jersey, Sonali Vij’s talent for playing the guitar holds her in good stead as it has made her into a composer – apparently, she has written over a thousand songs as per the bio – but, more importantly, her vocals fit well into her compositions as can be heard on the mainly acoustic based “Crown Of Thorns”. Sonali has kept her alternative rock roots foundation intact on it, but with an off-balance production – listen to the drums – and the subtle usage of lead guitar and keyboards to provide “Crown Of Thorns” a distinctly modern flavour. As strange as it may sound, Sonali provides a mini masterpiece of sorts containing self-referential lyrics which, for many, these litanies may not add to anything specific but, in totality, works extremely well as Sonali’s songcraft behind “Crown Of Thorns” is both fascinating and compelling on what appears to be an obviously individualist song but, if you dig deeper, it may just relate to you.
