Popular singer and songwriter Timea Göghova, who has amassed over 1,300 subscribers on YouTube with her mesmerizing mix of folk, jazz, and world music, has released a new song and video, “Stranded.” Featuring only the guitar accompaniment of Mikail Kuhnert, the strong ballad highlights Göghova’s typically strong vocal performance.
The evocative video brings out just how passionate “Stranded” is, both as a song and as a performance. The television-ready production finds Göghova and Kuhnert in nature, among rocks and brooks, which is fitting considering the natural feel of the song. It also is evocative of “Stranded,” as the track has both the calming and fierce aspects of nature.
Indeed, “Stranded” is a song of empowerment, the strength of the lyrics fitting the vocal and guitar performances. Though “beaten by the tempest,” she shows that she’ll persevere, with both gentleness and strength. “I am made out of steel/go through fire and hell/let it rain down on me” she says with equal parts fight and resilience.
“Stranded” contains multitudes, with both the tenderness of a ballad, accentuated by the solo guitar accompaniment, and the strength and fearlessness of the message of the song. Göghova’s vocal performance also contains both of these aspects. It isn’t necessarily tender, but it is certainly subtle, while also having the force of passion and emotion, putting across the lyrics and feel of the song with great success.
