Piana Snow Bird
- Words: Jennifer Marston
- Label: Happy
Piana's debut solo album is a hybrid of experimental and electro-pop, a mixture this Japanese artist uses to display her evident mastery of music production Still, Snow Bird is too tranquil-nothing happens to push the music beyond a plateau of carefully plucked string instruments and wavy vocal trills. The most interesting sounds here are the chirping birds, but even they transform from innovative Japanese pop addition to New Age frill in under 30 seconds.
