Discovery: Elsmore Carey

April is Elsmore Carey’s fourth single, and is an original musical adapation of Ella Higginson’s poem April.

By Jane Howkins

It’s an acoustic ditty featuring soft vocals and an upbeat tone, and you can definitely tell that it was based around a poem just from listening to it – there’s a certain sombre tone to it. It’s very beautiful, and when the brief chorus kicks in the chord progression is even prettier than before. Check it out below to see if you agree!
