New Music: Courtney Cole – Down To Earth

Courtney Cole is a Los Angeles, USA-based indie pop singer songwriter who first caught my attention through her poetic track Light. I’m pleased to say she’s back on the blog with a new one. It’s called Down To Earth.

Down To Earth is a dreamy number, opening with ambient electronic instrumental layers and delicate hummed vocals. It explodes into life during its first chorus, where the vocals turn from delicate to striking. The percussion becomes heavy and the emotion is turned up to max. Post-chorus, things return to delicateness, with clever use of loud/quiet to reflect the mood of the lyrics.

It’s another powerful offering from an artist whose mastery of sound and energy sets her apart from other contemporary pop musicians. You can check out Down To Earth below.
