British singer-songwriter Laura Welsh is back with ‘Red,’ the lead single from her forthcoming four-track EP, See Red. In this follow-up to her acclaimed 2014 debut, Soft Control, Welsh retains her vibrant electro-pop sound while adding new depth to her vocals. The gorgeously crafted track showcases Welsh’s strong, robust voice, the confident breathiness of which makes the listener feel as if they’re being let in on a secret. In the echoing chorus Welsh repeats, pleading, “If only you could feel my love,” with a hard to resist intensity.
The song feels current, both in its relatable themes and sweeping vocals. With its contemporary tones, this alluring track may just have enough mainstream appeal to propel Welsh to more widespread popularity.
See Red is out November 4 under Welsh’s own imprint, TwentyTwoSeven Recordings.
