CHOON OF THE DAY: "WORK" - Charlotte Day Wilson
Almost every year I tend to fall for one big ballad in the whole sea of electronic sounds, synth pop and house anthems I normally listen to. It was the case of Jessie Ware's monumental "Wildest Moments" in 2012, Rosie Lowe's refined "Right Thing" in 2013 or Jones' classy "Indulge" which I have fallen in love with last year. 2016 brings Charlotte Day Wilson to the table of these exquisite yet understated chanteuses. This Toronto based songstress hypnotises the listeners with some truly exceptional vocals, charmingly old-fashioned production (organs and all!) and the intricately crafted sonic bridge between gospel, soul and classic pop with some subtle hints of 1990's trip-hop. High-class!
Here are the 3 other ballads I mentioned above:
