Okay guys! I'm gonna talk about someone a little under-the-POP-radar, but hear me out:
One of the reasons I like POP music is that is comes in a multitude of forms - it doesn't have to be a club-banger to be a beautiful song. That said, there is always a place in POP for someone like songstress Lucy Rose.
Some of our UK readers may have heard Lucy already - indeed, a lot of people were shocked when she was not listed in the BBC Sound of 2012. Lucy made friends singing back-up vocals for Bombay Bicycle Club & a name for herself after she released Middle of the Bed and my favorite of her songs, Scar. Lucy's sound is fresh, nearly pastoral. Like other bloggers, I appreciate its purity. Middle of the Bed and Scar have been out for a few months now, but they only sink in deeper with time. There is real texture to her music, and her voice, though sometimes meek-sounding, is purposeful & poised.
Lucy Rose deserves all the blogosphere buzz. A lovely girl making lovely music, Lucy is a true musician hand-crafting refreshing tunes for a drive out into the country with the windows down.
