GITTA DE RIDDER – SINGLE REVIEW

Gitta De Ridder – Till The Day That I Die 
Gitta De Ridder - Till The Day That I Die

Release Date: Out Now

I’ve been looking for protest music a lot this year, songs that speak of anger and injustice. Sometimes, though, you need to soothe your soul and calm the storm inside so it’s with delight that Dutch songstress Gitta De Ridder popped up in my inbox. De Ridder is a firm favourite at LWM and new single ‘Till the Day That I Die’ is a reassuringly smooth, slick and delicate piece of acoustic atmospheric mood music. The song builds on a picked riff to include a sprinkling of xylophone and warm strings while De Ridder’s voice dances that line between confidence and crumbling completely with the emotion of the lyrics. This exists in the same spectrum of music and feel as Laura Marling and David Kitt which is no bad place to live and there’s an utterly compelling video to accompany this as well which is just dandy.
