The first notes are struck and you already feel like you have landed in the very middle of a fairytale world. With her latest single Faces, rising British artist Chloe Rodgers is creating an ethereal sound scenery that is ready to let you drift off into universes just as otherworldly as her angelic vocal performance presents itself. Atmospheric, sublime and yet of a minimalistic degree, the tune develops a gracious stream, which is brooding of lyrical emotional intensity. There is a good reason to call the song Faces, pointing to the plural nature of a feeling, as the songwriter explains: “The first half of Faces is about one of the loveliest days I’ve had where I felt so connected to my friends and the universe. The second half is about one of the worst days of my life where I felt like I was being eaten alive by paranoia and fear, I really thought I wasn’t going to make it out alive that day”. To have put that into such a moving piece of music is a real stroke of luck. And you should all tune into it right here.
