Freja Frances – “Papercuts”
The piano/vocal combo on this track is extraordinary. The heartbreaking talent here is more than palpable and is sure to bring a variety of comparisons to more renowned artists. The artist explains, “The single is about a feeling of self-inflicted isolation and a distance from reality, told through fairytale themes.” It definitely has a fairytale vibe to it as it floats out of your speakers and into your heart. Her minimalist style is refreshing but also more complicated than it sounds. There is a definite wave of musical savvy crackling under the surface of the track. If you dig rich female vocals and haunting piano then look no further than this slow burning track.
