Single of the Day: Essie Holt “Underwater” (2017)

Essie Holt is only new on the scene but with her debut single “Underwater”, we’re pretty sure hers is a name we’re going to be hearing a lot more of in time. The song itself is lush, a great indie-pop tune, priding itself off gorgeous builds and excellently produced vocals (thanks to Joel Quartermain and Dave Hammer).

Similar in style to the likes of Banks and Lykke Li, Holt’s “Underwater” is blurry as if you were actually underwater, but after that first chorus hits, the song emerges bright in clarity and sound. Check it out below.
