New Music: Erawan – Booty Call

Booty Call is a reflection on the menacing world of dating, as told by London-based acoustic singer songwriter Erawan.

By Graeme Smith

Erawan, real name Hattie Marsh, is an artist I’ve covered before here on York Calling. I discovered her through her atmospheric track Touch Me. Her new song Booty Call is similarly rich in atmosphere, but there’s a different emotion to it. A simple piano melody and highly-present vocals give it a real sense of intimacy, but an uncomfortable one, like being intimate with someone for the first time. In this way, it perfectly reflects the song’s story – that of trying to navigate the divide between being single and not.

Hattie is an incredible song writer and the way she pours herself into her music really makes her stand out from her contemporaries. I can’t recommend her music enough.
