EDEL HELENA - LONELY PEOPLE
RELEASE DATE: MARCH 12th 2021
Although women may be under-represented in festival line-ups, one artist I can see headlining far and wide is Edel Helena!
"The world is full of lonely people", has a truer quote come out this year? I think not.
I was overjoyed when Edel sent me this song as from the first listen I just knew it was absolutely fantastic. As with many things, first impressions are vital and the first impression you get from this song is an 80's aesethic full of infectious guitar riffs and licks, rocking drums, a groovy synth lead and then some immaculate vocals.
I would like to focus in on the vocals for an extra moment. The high-pitched, delicate nature in which Edel sings is irresistable. The way each word and every note is nurtured to perfection give this song an extra edge. 'Lonely People' also blends musical genre's together, and is a song I can see bringing different walks of life together to vibe along to this.
Ultimately, 'Lonely People' is just a magnificent songs and I can't speak highly enough of it!
