Lucy Mason - White As Snow

Single review by

London-based singer-songwriter Lucy Mason is set to leave the deepest tread marks with her first offering 'White As Snow', the title-track taken from her self-released EP which can be yours to purchase from March 31st. The track opens with a vague and sombre intro that portrays a bleak sadness in each heavy hit of sparse piano notes, supported with mournful vocal humming, reminiscent of Imogen Heap. Lucy's slow, strong, spine-tingling vocals are then rawly exposed as she almost shivers out heartfelt and emotive lyrics before catching you completely off-guard when euphoric, twinkly electronica and syncopated drum beats kick in to mix it all up a bit.

There's a fragile pain, purity and beauty in Lucy's controlled vocals as she ranges from almost a whisper to full falsetto. With an abundance of female vocalists always popping up left right and centre, Lucy has an unforgettable warmth and quality to her music that takes you somewhere special, somewhere powerful, beyond the sound and that's exactly why we know she won't become lost amongst the masses any time soon.
