Singer-songwriter Alexander Berdnikov, also known as Estervalley, lives in a really far-far away town of Komsomolsk-na-Amure in the East of Russia. This might somehow explain minimal arrangements of his music. However, it’s just the first impression.
Earlier this year, Estervalley released a new EP called “A Stranger’s Song”, which you can stream here. Out of 5 pieces that make up this tender mini-album, “What Does Your Heart Keep” is the most memorable one.
With each listen, this modest track – written for his close friend to cheer her up – grows more and more impressive, juicy and full-blooded.
