Marem Ladson grew up in Spain listening to American pop and folk music. Now she's living in New York City and releasing her own version of both of those sounds. "Rayo de Luna" shows that off perfectly. For the first minute and a half, the song is just an acoustic guitar that still sounds a little pop. Once Ladson's vocals kick in, you're sure to be entranced. "Rayo de Luna" is such a simple song, but Ladson's vocals have such a lush quality to them. It's a gorgeous song that has a little bit of an unexpected edge for folk pop, but that's what makes this release from Marem Ladson impossible to resist. Sometimes the best beauty has a little bit of a rough edge to it.
