Review: Hannah Rodgers – I Wake
THIS ARTICLE WAS ORIGINALLY PUBLISHED BY MUSIC NEWS.
It’s rare for a debut single to completely envelop you, like a good bubble bath on a cold winter’s night. Yet as the Autumnal leaves begin to fall, and the days get increasingly shorter, that’s exactly what Hannah Rodgers debut single,I Wake, feels like.
Like the best work of Sigur Ros, the stripped backing track, with its gentle guitar work and synth-drenched echoing multiplexes is immersive, yet never stands in the way of Rodgers smooth vocals.
Hannah’s voice is pure and simple. There’s no moulding here, and it’s always refreshing to hear someone being who they are, without any bravado or swagger.
The feeling is of someone at one with themselves, and their craft, and in today’s harsh world, sometimes that’s exactly what we all need to hear.
I Wake is available on SoundCloud now. You can see a music video for the track below.
