Sometimes, falling madly in love can make you walk around with blinkers on to how it effects others. London based Bristol born singer-songwriter Charlotte Lansman is back with her latest single and this one means a lot. It’s called ‘Blind’ and finds this vivacious artist letting us into her heart for a short while.
This is the Jazzy-Blues story of a relationship that shouldn’t be happening but does anyway, as you both can’t get enough of each other. You are the secret and this is starting to really affect you as you spend most of your time waiting around. The heart wants this to continue but your head knows that the time to end this is coming closer and things are starting to unravel, slowly but surely. He loves the rush of the double life but you have grown weary and need more. Those lonely baths aren’t doing it for you anymore but for it to carry on, you don’t mind closing your eyes to hide the truth for a little bit longer.
Her voice is so crisp and elegant, the years of experience and voice training showing her class and many hours of dedication. You get the feeling that she is holding back slightly as this is a very personal story that she perhaps wrestled with about releasing. The honesty is admirable and her lyrics show you inside the door as we see the empty wine glass that should be full, next to hers.
‘Blind’ by London’s Charlotte Lansman is a riveting story of love that should be simple but is highly complicated. The Jazzy songstress shows her vulnerability and sings with such grace. With her new music on the way and a fledgling recording career just getting going with some big goals in place, she is a quality performer who tells it how it is. Honesty, no matter if you agree with the person or not; is always an admirable quality that is often rare in the weird world of flashy fakes and human robots.
