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.

Cheery takes us to school with her vulnerable ‘bummer pop’ debut single, ‘Concept of Love’

Any fans of Anna Calvi, Nadine Shah and St Vincent will want to delve into the evocatively avant-garde debut single, Concept of Love, from ‘bummer pop’ artist, Cheery.

The Kansas-based artist mixed spiritual earthy tones with chilling noir pop electronica for her imploringly dynamic vocal timbre to fall into. You’d seriously be hard-pressed to find more gravitas in another 2021 indie debut. The vulnerability in the vocals and the alchemy in the instrumentals prove to be a potent cocktail that resulted in mainstream potential.

Concept of Love is now available to stream on Spotify.
