With her upcoming single “Love is Like a Breeze”, Annabel Hailey proves that Funk has a place in Acoustic Folk Pop. Their romantic, urgent, melodically intoxicating approach to songwriting incorporates elements of old school yet, it’s more than fitting for 21st-century airwaves. Love is Like a Breeze is enough to make Ed Sheeran’s back catalogue sound banal.
The slightly baroque and cabaret touch to the classic Pop vocals allowed Annabel Hailey to smother the track with her magnetic yet undemanding playfully sultry vocals. With nuances of Jazz and Neo-Soul weaved into the organically enrapturing soundscape, every second of the 3:40-duration will leave you gratified for finding this truly exceptional artist.
You can check out Annabel Hailey’s single from October 23rd on all major platforms including SoundCloud.
