Montreal’s Common Holly (a.k.a. Brigitte Naggar) comes to terms with letting go on her latest single “Nothing.” Cycling through gentle crescendos and reflective choruses echoing in three-part harmony, the song is a refreshingly honest take on the post-relationship struggle of wanting the best for the other person.
“Nothing” gently delivers Naggar’s parting thoughts in a warm blanket of soft sounds that fold together to reinforce her well wishes. The ballad’s decorated simplicity creates an overall tone somewhere between sorrowful and hopeful, resonating comfortably until the very end. Common Holly’s new album, Playing House, is out on September 4th on Solitaire Recordings.
