Freja Frances makes a welcome return with another batch of delicate, heartfelt tracks that look set to mesmerise her audience once again with the release of her double a-side single, Porcelain Doll / Breathe, on 4th November 2016 via ShimmerSun Music.
Despite portraying individual stories, Porcelain Doll and Breathe still feel as though they come together as one whole. Written around the same time, with Freja enlisting the help of sessions musicians, these two tracks exhibit a significant progress in Freja’s already impressive songwriting skills, as she effortlessly displays a stunning storytelling charm akin to the likes of Gabrielle Aplin. Still remaining centre stage however, are Freja’s effortless, authentic vocals accompanied by her intimate, yet powerful, piano-led melodies helping to bring both tracks to life.
Freja first started writing songs at the age of nine with dreams of starting a rock band and becoming the next big thing. However, due to her ability to prolifically write high calibre music at such a young age, Freja decided she didn’t need a band behind her and ended up with a collection of heartfelt songs which she now has at her disposal. Since the release of her debut EP Ghosts, Freja has received praise from various publications including For Folk’s Sake, Gigslutz and The Girls Are, to name a few. She has also performed at Sofar Sounds London and has been commissioned to write a song for Bossa Studios’ upcoming game ‘Worlds Adrift’, which launches later this year.
With this latest release, it feels as though Freja has started to find her niche as a musician as her songwriting ability continues to go from strength to strength. Catch Freja’s next live date below:
