In just four years Alina Orlova, a prodigy from the small Lithuanian town of Visaginas, has come a long way. Whether performing solo piano or with a full band, she never fails to mesmerise, gathering influ- ential admirers and collaborators including British music writer Kieron Tyler, Russia's premier rock critic Artyom Troitsky, filmmaker Vincent Moon, producer John Forte, and Fran Healy of Travis. Her sound could be described as a female Antony with splashes of psychedelia and Stina Nordenstam, but comparisons seem trite for an artist of such unique talents. Her breakthrough album “Laukinis šuo Dingo” (trans: “Wild Dog Dingo”) included songs written at the age of fifteen; her second, “Mutabor” followed in 2010 (both on French label Fargo). She has since shared stages with artists like Nick Cave, Jack Johnson and Future Sound Of London.
