Creative Review New Music
In an era where Disclosure and Rudimental bring the heart of drum and bass back to life, Sian Cross arrives with her own take on it. Having shared the stage with Jessie J and Stevie Wonder, this West-country born, London-based singer-songwriter is an exceptional vocalist, known for her emotional and pitch-perfect performances.
Sian’s upcoming new single Tell Anybody is a sonic partnership between the hard hitting production and her haunting vocal. Compared to the likes of Oh Wonder and Anne-Marie, Sian has full control over her voice which shines through the stripped back verses perfectly.
Forming a sonic synergy with the personal style of her song writing, it’s the evocative lyrics, based on true stories that create an additional connection to the listener. Inspired by a man’s struggle with his sexuality, Tell Anybody is a powerful offering with Sian’s unconstrained passion spilling into her words. The explosive and catchy chorus comfortably rides on the rhythm’s flow, as well as effectively captures both pain and triumph of the journey through her poignant vocal performance.
In her words, Sian explains: “Lyrical content is very important to me both in writing and listening to music. In Tell Anybody I have tried to capture the truth behind the story whilst still leaving room for personal interpretation. My hope is for each listener to come away feeling strength in whatever their current struggle, igniting a desire to be true to themselves without fear of judgment or prejudice.”
Tell Anybody is an honest song being led by the intonations of hope, and it will be available everywhere 29th July.
