Estella Dawn‘s ever unique brand of contemporary pop adopts yet another stylish manner of sound-design and melodic progression, uniting qualities of country pop and outright quirky production, for the bright and heartfelt Easy To Fall.
Always versatile in everything from lyrical substance to style and vocal performance, Estella meanders down a longform verse pattern for this, as mentioned, country-kissed ode to falling out of love.
The track builds up slowly, initially making fine use of a colourful yet minimalist backdrop, later evolving into more familiar pop-rock territories – layers of piano, guitar, bass, vocal reinforcement.
The latter half sees the concept fully envisioned as Estella’s passionate commitment to the cause elevates the melodic resolve of that hook. Then we get a quick-paced middle-8 that seems to tip its hat to the likes of Taylor Swift – another unexpected twist from the consistently impressive yet unpredictable New Zealand artist.
Faultlessly captured, ultimately highlighting a clear and unwavering ability to write memorable, powerful pop songs, Easy To Fall furthers the professionalism, fun and fiercely emotive sound of Estella’s catalogue in a catchy, likable fashion.
