New Music: Estella Dawn – Cringe

Estella Dawn is becoming a very familiar face on our blog. Between us we’ve shared many of her tracks, and she just keeps delivering fresh new ones! Cringe is her latest, an exploration of past mistakes.

By Graeme Smith

Cringe is delivered with the characteristic alternative pop stylings we’ve now come to expect of Estella. Her lyrics are thoughtful and thought-provoking as usual, swerving cliché and embracing authenticity. Its stand out feature, though, is a soaring chorus, which ramps up the emotion laid down by stripped-back verses.

Born and raised in New Zealand, Estella is now based in the US where she is enjoying a growing reputation around the world for her fresh take on pop. We’re certainly fans here and I hope you will be too. You can check out Cringe below.
