‘I Walk Alone Tonight’ is the confessional debut single from the classically trained UK singer-songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist, Iona Maclennan. With the orchestral strings pulling across the minimalist ballad, the instrumental score parallels the evocative magnetism of Iona Maclennan’s artful, spiritual in part, vocals.
After spending almost a lifetime trying to make sense of the world and the confusing dynamics within it, studying the sounds of Bastille, Finneas, and Jacob Collier, and taking lyrical influence from Billie Eilish, Lewis Capaldi and Taylor Swift, it comes as little surprise that the self-produced single carries enough emotion to leave your heart in your throat as you succumb to the power of the melodies and the lyrical poetry.
However she follows on from her debut, we’re stoked to hear it.
The lyric video to I Walk Alone Tonight is now available to stream via YouTube.
