Es Muss Sein - New Music "Introducing"

Facebook / esmusssein.bandcamp.com/

One thing that is almost certain is that there is infinitely more talent around today then there is time for me to discover it all but it's discoveries like Es Muss Sein that make the endless trails around the Internet, emails and recommendations worthwhile. Sure often you open up a mail to find a remix of Justin Bieber or whoever happens to be 'cool' at that current moment in time but sometimes the chase has a reward that is worth way more than the time it took to discover them, this is one such case...

Es Muss Sein is Poppy Wilson, a young singer/songwriter from Kent, earlier this year she released her debut self-titled EP and with overflowing superlatives I'll now say how wonderful it is. "Sail" introduces Poppy's raw, intimate styling, slow paced guitar circles provide simple backing for her voice and lyrics to shine, there within lies the key to the EP, it's not so much about the sparse guitar riffs but Poppy's heart wrenching delivery and lyrics where she bares her soul down for all to hear. The very epitome of beauty, "Sail" is one of those tracks that stays with you long after it's finished.

"Those Days" comes close to competing with it too (even when backed by seagull harmonies in the live video below), similarly uncluttered the acoustic and voice track of reflection and emotion is lonely and wrapped in melancholia but also completely gorgeous. With her exquisite delivery and velvet voice Es Muss Sein, further development could soon lead Poppy to be drawing similarly plaudits to those of Ms Marling and co. Here's hoping...
