VANESSA RICHARDSON ISN'T "GIVING IN": LISTEN
Updated: Jun 11, 2021
SOUNDS LIKE: Sevdaliza, BANKS
Vanessa Richardson is one of those artists you come across once in a while that have the power to bring you to a completely different dimension.
The warmth of her voice carries a sort of darkness, while her tracks push the boundaries of conventional alternative music. Through experimental samples and layering of background vocals, Richardson sets herself apart from other artists. Her lyrics, however powerful, are also extremely ambiguous, as she allows for the melodies and textures of the music to speak for themselves. One of our personal favourites, "Spider" combines percussive textures with an almost monologue-like vocal, peeking through the samples used to create these songs that are in themselves masterpieces.
Unlike many artists you've heard before, Vanessa Richardson dares to venture where others are too afraid, and we anxiously await her next release.
