Pop Noir Chanteuse Annabel Hailey Has Released Her Soulfully Organic Single, Rhythm of Life

Annabel Hailey

Finland-born, Amsterdam-based singer-songwriter, Annabel Hailey, has released her latest jazzy single, Rhythm of Life; you’d be hard-pressed to find a more mesmerising pop-noir chanteuse.

Any fans of Tori Amos, The Anchoress, Fiona Apple and Kate Bush will quickly feel their senses surrender to the rich and exotic 50s flamenco vibes and organic Nordic pop elements in the soundscape that oozes as much class as the Upper East Side. With over 500k Spotify streams under her belt to date, Hailey has exactly what it takes to be the next big name in folk-inclined alt-pop. We can’t wait to watch her ascent to the top of the charts. She is a rare visionary in a world so swathed in monotony.

Rhythm of Life was released on October 1st; check it out for yourselves on Spotify.

Funk and Jazz meet Folk Pop in Annabel Hailey’s latest single “Love is Like a Breeze”

Annabel Hailey

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.
