Vestige is a concept album written, composed, and produced by Princeton senior Glenna Jane Galarion ’21 that encapsulates absence: the absence of permanence, the absence of unconditionality, the absence of choice, the absence of wholeness, the absence of voice. With her debut full-length original musical project, Galarion explores intimacy and attachment, sonically and lyrically tracing her conceptions of relationships and entanglements from a father’s absence to a reclamation of the body. “Body,” the debut single from the album, was released on Friday, February 26. Listen to the single. The full album release is May 7, 2021. See more of the album
