If you are not immediately enthralled by Bella Deer’s vocals, then perhaps music is not for you after all. But a song is not just a voice; it is so much more besides, but I’m pleased to report that she ticks all the right boxes in those other areas, too.

The song itself ebbs and flows between delicacy and anthemics; it is spacious enough to wonderfully frame the riffs and motifs that shoot through the song; it walks a fine line between traditional analogue musicality and the embrace of digital song crafting. And more than all that, it is simply a great song with a fantastic sentiment.

I can’t think of anything that she has missed. Hang on….hmmm…no, nothing.
