Femme Tracks #3

No Roots by Alice Merton

This was an unexpected and happy find! I never watch Jimmy Fallon but for whatever reason, I was bored and turned it on and the musical guest that night was Alice Merton. Merton is a German-Canadian-English singer and songwriter and gained mainstream success with her single "No Roots". She's recently released her debut EP No Roots another favourite of mine on that EP is "Lash Out".

I build a home and wait for someone to tear it down / Then pack it up in boxes, head for the next town running / ‘Cause, I’ve got memories and travel like gypsies in the night

I Said Hi by Amy Shark

Well, I was going to share "Adore" by Amy Shark but I realized she released a wicked new single, "I Said Hi". The song is directed at music industry executives who rejected her for a decade. Shark is making waves worldwide with the release of her debut EP Night Thinker. Her track "Sink In" was also included on the feature film soundtrack for Love, Simon.

Lying on my side, watching time fly by / And I bet the whole world thought that I would give up today

Sky Full of Song by Florence + The Machine

Not originally scheduled for today's post but when Florence + The Machine releases new music... You make room. A new album is expected in June until then we are blessed with "Sky Full of Song". That is all.

Grab me by my ankles, I’ve been flying for too long / I couldn’t hide from the thunder in a sky full of song
