Intriguing new solo artist Starling has just shared her debut track, ‘Take It Down‘. Citing the likes of Fiona Apple and Bat For Lashes as sources of influence, this her first offering to the world is a forlorn, dark, brooding piano led ballad, that is really quite exciting.
Set for release on Communion Records, Starling’s wonderfully restrained and soulful vocals take the lead, as the delicately arranged verses tease what’s to come. Starling comes into her own in the chorus, with some light electronic instrumentation providing the perfect backdrop to her haunting vocal delivery. It’s certainly an impressive first track that suggests there’s more great things to come. Listen for yourselves below.
