Holly Humberstone is a rising pop star from Grantham, England that I can't get out of my head. She hides a folky voice behind a strong pop beat, making me enjoy the genre more than I thought I could.
Her voice is stunning and genuine. There’s a cool and consistent bass keeping the beat strong all the way through. The fiery horns are also incredible.
The horns are actually what caught me at first, but then I saw a comment on SoundCloud complimenting the piano rhythm, and suddenly I was captivated by that instead. I quickly realized how she fit all the pieces of this song so snug together that it all becomes one. Focus on an individual piece to appreciate layers of songwriting and see what I mean.
Isn't it hard to believe this is only the second song she’s released? !
