Would you believe that the American alternative to the likes of Laura Marling, Lucy Rose and Billie Marten has been sitting under the radar of our noses this entire time? Could you also consider the fact that this indie-folk enthusiast, poised and prepared to give the entire UK scene a run for its money only released her debut EP earlier this year? Open your minds and expand your horizons with Katie Buxton.
Plucked from her From Songbirds EP, released in March 2016, is Buxton’s latest surprise ‘You Flew’. Written by the songwriting-major herself, the single is said to be about “caring deeply for someone who is not ready to love or be loved”. It can therefore seemingly be assumed that Buxton has experienced heartbreak far beyond her young years. This pain has been translated through delicate lyrics, sweet vocals and barely-there acoustic guitar riffs. To put it simply, ‘You Flew’ is a beautiful piece of Buxton’s past, brought blossoming into the future.
The singer/songwriter’s single was recorded and mixed by Sal Oliveri (Lady Antebellum, Sheryl Crow) while mastered by Luke Gilfeather in his Nashville studio.
