WILSN – “Love Me Back”

This Australian songbird has been impressing with her strong, soulful vocal capabilities, earning her comparisons to a young Aretha Franklin. She released her debut EP “Don’t Give Up” back in 2015, which features the horn section of Mark Ronson and the late Charles Bradley. Now relocated to Nashville, USA, she’s been honing her sound, merging vintage soul with touches of pop and blues.

The result shines brightly on her latest single. The delicate, under-stated production of this ballad, which is build up with alluring acoustic piano and the angelic sounds of a gospel choir, gives the exceptional soulful tonality of her vocals room to charm and dazzle. Chronicling an unrequited love, this poignant song gels together into an exquisite, ear-stroking gem.
