By Jane Howkins

How I Long is quite poppy, but there’s more to it than just your typical pop song. It’s catchy, yet you can tell there is a real artist performing here. There’s quite a melancholy feel to the song and the main melody is simply stunning. There are also elements of folk music present in the track and we found the piano and strings to be particularly beautiful. How I Long has an incredibly raw and emotional feeling to it that is often missing from a lot of pop music nowadays – have a listen to the track below and see if you agree!
