Discovery: Stefanie Parnell

Stefani Parnell is a singer songwriter from Montreal, Canada. Her dreamy new folk pop track is called Breathe.

By Graeme Smith

Breathe combines powerful vocals with ethereal, looping instrumentals to create something that feels quite unreal. The epic choruses are punctuated with intimate acoustic verses, grounding the whole piece just as it threatens to become stratospheric. It’s wonderful.

The track is taken from Stefanie’s forthcoming debut EP Modern Tragedy, due for release on 15 October. The EP explores themes of loss, conflict and internal struggle. Breathe is the tale’s moment of cathartic release. You can hear it below.
