Love persists in Matilda Pratt’s tender indie pop love letter, Dear You

Swift fans will want to flock around the latest single, Dear You, to come from the 20-year-old indie pop songstress, Matilda Pratt, who studies law at Oxford University by day and lights up the airwaves by night with her classic yet quirky pop vocal dynamism. The vocal layering is nothing but a work of art in Dear You, which act as an open love letter to a departed and distant lover.

While the lyrics are straight-up bubble gum pop, Pratt’s husky harmonics bring them alive with a sense of old soul over the simple sporadically rugged folk-pop acoustic guitar progressions. How Pratt is still an unknown artist is utterly beyond me. Her vocal talent is as matchless as her capacity to draw you into a compelling narrative.

Dear You will officially release on September 30th. Check it out on Spotify.
