Music review: Zoë Wren – Vapour

Folk music icon Zoë Wren recently surprised her fans with a new song and music video. Vapour takes us back to the World War II era.

It's not the first time the young British singer-songwriter has given us a theme, we have already written a short review of her song Sailing Boat on GazMag.

Vapour is in many ways a sharp change from Zoë Wren's previous songs. Both musically and in the mood of the music video for the track, it evokes the period of the Second World War. The lyrics are inspired by a true story: a young French woman, Jeannie Rousseau, worked as a spy for years after the German invasion of her country.

The song adds Zoë's distinctive timbre with a contemporary sound and cinematic guitar playing, and the upbeat melody makes for an enjoyable folk-rock creation. The unconventional musicality suits the British musician as well as her previous work.

Zoë also regularly streams online on her Twitch channel, so anyone with a taste for the talented artist's music can indulge their curiosity on a weekly basis.

The Runway Run, Budapest Airport’s charity running race, started off for the tenth time on Saturday. The airport operator will again donate proceeds from the invitation-only race, which will amount to several million forints, to charity this year.
