WE REVIEW THE NEW SINGLE FROM LISSY TAYLOR – FEEL FOR ME
Fresh from her recent UK tour, rising indie rockstar Lissy Taylor returns with her latest fiery single, ‘Feel For Me’.
The new track continues to showcase the Taylor’s diverse artistry, with an alt-rock-infused sound that is reminiscent of Wolf Alice and Sam Fender. Opening with soaring electric guitars and crashing drums, the fierce energy of the track is immediately established.
With such heavy instrumentation, the Stoke-born singer’s gritty vocals almost seem to be drowned out when they first emerge. It doesn’t take long to realise that this subtle introduction is intentional, as hushed vocals develop into high-powered belts during the chorus.
Centring around the rollercoaster of emotions experienced in relationships, Taylor’s dynamic voice acts as the perfect driving force for the ever-changing intensity of the track. Juxtaposing introspective verses with an immense chorus, ‘Feel For Me’ cleverly encapsulates the highest and lowest points of relationships.
Throughout the track, tension and release are cleverly utilised to complement emotionally turbulent lyricism. This technique is particularly effective during the bridge, where prevailing percussive production falls away to showcase Taylor’s impressive vocal prowess. After one last powerful high note, all guitars and drumbeats return at once to offer a euphoric ending to the rock anthem.
From the anticipation of new love to the hopelessness of heartbreak, ‘Feel For Me’ offers a versatile soundtrack to the often unpredictable journey that relationships can take. With various festival appearances set for the near future, it looks like Lissy Taylor is quickly establishing herself as a memorable live artist and songwriter.
