Newfoundland-based indie singer-songwriter, Clare Follett has unveiled her brand new alternative-pop single, “Now”.
With a gripping guitar and drum line complimented by beautiful vocals that express the developing emotions in the lyrics, the vocals and instruments blend seamlessly together which make a hauntingly delicate yet powerful song.
The feeling of being stuck and left alone is a feeling that everyone has experienced at some point in time – “Now” shows a vulnerable side of the young singer-songwriter.
The stunningly produced track offers reassurance and consolation to listeners, showing that they are valid in feeling these emotions after the loss of young love.
“”Now” is off of my album Reclamation which is about my first breakup. The lyrics of the song reflect that he had moved on, but it was taking me much longer. The melody and production of “Now” have a lot of symbolism – after the bridge there are seven voices singing “what do I do now” which leads into one voice where no one is left around me. Also the drum solo – everything drops out and hangs, but the drum solo doesn’t resolve which is symbolic of how I felt at the time.”
Through her music career, the young star has been selected as an East Coast Music Association Rising Star of the Year in 2017, and Break Out Artist in 2018, and has garnered over 500,000 streams on Spotify, and she’s not showing any signs of slowing down.
