Meet Felicity who was conceived in Australia and brought up in Cape Town, South Africa.
She is right now situated in NYC and makes clearing, anthemic pop that reviews any semblance of Sia, with a gravelly-heartfelt powerhouse belt reminiscent of Florence + The Machine and Joss Stone.
On Friday, the newcomer discharged her introduction single Pilot With A Fear Of Heights , created by Grammy victor Brian Kierulf (Lady Gaga, Britney Spears).
Over taking off, gospel-tinged move down vocals and fragile piano, the artist’s rough sweet soprano takes off to start the apparently sad cut with “I’m treading water, similar to a minister’s girl.” But as soon the sucker punch of a snare surges in, it’s reasonable the pop upstart’s introduction is gunning for melody of the late spring status.
See what felicity say about the song:
“Pilot with a Fear of Heights’ is a song I wrote from a timid place. I wanted so badly not to want this person but ultimately being with him was my destiny,” Felicity shares. “That’s exactly what this song is about; a fear of destiny, a pilot whose job is to literally be in the sky, navigating a plane but is ultimately terrified of the largest component of the act (the height). Conceptually I came up with the idea while actually on a plane myself. I brought the idea into the studio the next day and the song basically wrote itself. Sonically I wanted it to be turbulent, which is why the song is slow until the first chorus hits, like a jolt of unexpected turbulence in your ears, then I got the lyrics to match and from there the song felt complete.”
