Right from the beginning drums of FLETCHER’s debut single “War Paint,” you know you’re about to experience something special. What that something is, however, is completely unexpected. The New York-based musician has a voice that’s meant to be heard with the volume turned way up. The way she delivers the spitfire verses has us thinking she can probably throw down some sweet rhymes, too.
But back to the song: It’s a summer jam, if we’ve ever heard one. There’s a lightness to the percussion-heavy track that has us itching to drop everything and hit the pavement in a roadster. This is what you get when you mix Sugarland with Tove Lo: anthemic pop with introspection and soul. FLETCHER’s on to something, and we are so here for it.
