Female Vocals Dominate – Part III

     In the blog entry of March 29th, we featured three songs with strong female voices. That March entry can be accessed by CLICKING HEREThe theme was repeated on April 29th (accessible by CLICKING HERE).
     It is time for a third round of songs in which there is a heavy reliance on the female voice. But this time there will be more than three songs, since the post will include songs we have featured in the past.
     Indie Obsessive is obsessed with the song “All the Days” by HAERTS, which is a band based in New York, but includes members which hail from Germany, England and the United States. The five members are Nini Fabi, Ben Gebert, Garrett Ienner, Derek McWilliams, and Jonathan Schmidt.
      “All the Days” by HAERTS

Natalie McCool
     Natalie McCool is from Liverpool. Her debut album was released on April 15, 2013. The song favored by us is “Black Sun.”

Hero Fisher
     As we said only a few days ago, Hero Fishers's "Fear Not Victorious” begins with very little to distract the listener from her story. An acoustic guitar is present, but the guitar work is simple and the mixing makes certain that the focus is on the voice. But toward the end of song, the story has been told and the vocals get out of the way of the driving instruments, until a quiet finish occurs. Between the beginning portion with the focus on the story and the end portion with the focus on the instruments, there are transitions in which of the two dominates. But starting at the 4:14 mark of the song, there is a portion in which neither dominates, but instead the vocals and the iinstruments cooperate in raising the energy and the emotion. That is our favorite portion of "Fear Not Victorious."

Night VI
      "Thinking of You" was featured by us in June, but it desires a return. The Night VI is a six-member group with ties to the U.K. and France. The lead voice is that of Sophie-Rose Harper, but there are a number of features to enjoy. How many bands feature a harp?

Astrid Williamson
     It is two years old, but we were only recently introduced to “Pour” by Astrid Williamson.
