Aside from being the phonetic pronunciation of her given name, Yohuna (“yo-HUN-ah”) is the solo project of Johanne Swanson, an unsettled native of Eau Claire, WI, whose hazily brilliant music evokes the purest states of mind. With a Casio keyboard, layered vocal arrangements and vehement, minimal beats, she writes sedated, downbeat anthems. Sounds and lyrics drip with moody reference to past love, loss, reflection and rejection while maintaining a hopeful, airy quality eagerly anticipating an uncertain future. 
Over the course of a year in New Mexico, with her head and heart in other, faraway places, Swanson transformed her emotions into four enigmatic, intimate, leisurely structured pop gems and a collaborative drone. Recorded December of 2010 with the help of friend Andrew Todryk (Vacation Dad) in a basement during a bitter Wisconsin winter, her debut EP Revery remains relatively unearthed—still frozen in that season waiting to be thawed. Only 50 hand-dubbed cassettes were made, now long sold-out rarities.  
Coupled with a considerate amount of blog coverage, however, Revery left an undeniable impression as a meaningful piece of music in early 2011—an essential listen for anyone interested in home recording. Art Fag Recordings, a California-based label home to a small but potent roster of up-and-coming artists, dug it up a year later, and the label is proud to present a remastered Revery on 7-inch and cassette, incontrovertibly giving this hidden treasure the proper release it deserves.
