If you’re looking for an up and coming artist that combines emotional and earnest lyricism with lo-fi pop-inspired production, you may not have to search much further.
Fresh to the alternative music scene at the opportune age of 16, Pennsylvanian pop artist Estelle Fox brings her youthful honesty and captivating vocals together in her new single, “I Always Do This,” which dropped today, August 26th.
Piano-driven and full of emotion, Fox tells the story of unreciprocated love and her desire for honesty above all. Regarding the song, Fox says, “My loving nature is a crucial part of my identity and it’s something I never want to feel shame or guilt about.” She backs her frank lyricism in this project with delicate guitar instrumentation, natural percussion, and a foundational piano progression.
Fox finds her inspiration from alternative artists that share her production and lyricism, like Clairo and Beach Bunny. After discovering her love for songwriting while learning piano when she was a kid, she has used her music as an outlet to express her emotions and growing pains, as an inherent artist does no matter what the age.
She has been working hand-in-hand with renowned producer Barb Morrison, who is known for their previous work with big time artists like Franz Ferdinand and Blondie. Morrison has used their vetted musical style to mentor Fox through her projects, and this single is one of two they have already released together.
“I Always Do This,” has the ability to fit comfortably on any of your fresh pop playlists, and thematically follows her piano ballad and debut single, “Crazy” which dropped earlier this summer. While Fox may just be beginning her musical career, her maturity and talent have already taken shape, and can be seen in her projects thus far.
The sky is the limit for this emerging songstress.
