Release Date: Out Now
The vocal melody that opens this new track from Hannah Featherstone is instantly ear-catching and immediately puts you in a place that is usually occupied by the likes of Sia, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Laura Mvula, Bat For Lashes, early Ellie Goulding and Kimbra among others. ‘What’s In a Name’ blends an electro-pop groove based around a simple piano riff with Carly Simon-esque vocals and the kind of phrasing you’d expect from a Jazz track or a progressive new stage musical – Hamilton, perhaps. Featherstone’s voice is gorgeous enough as it is but the Franco-British talent has not rested on her laurels and pushes boundaries with melody and arrangement to create something that spans genres which is no easy feat. Magnifique, non?
