Laufey’s feathery voice and gentle vibrato has a timeless quality to it. I've been picking up a bit of a retro feel; something that echoes back to singers like Judy Garland that dominated the 1940's and 1950's.
It’s clear Laufey has a big voice hiding inside her, and she would be able to belt this song out if she wanted, but instead, she chooses to keep everything more restrained and hushed. That way, the half Icelandic and half Chinese artist simply whispers everything into your ear.
While her voice is bound to whisk you away, the depressing lyrics will keep you grounded. The song talks about losing feelings in the things and people around you. It talks about the journey of falling in love.
Laufey is based in Boston and is a student at the Berklee College of Music. In addition to her expertise in singing and guitar, she's also an experienced cellist.
