Newcomer FLETCHER, a New Jersey-bred singer-songwriter, is here to launch a full on attack with her debut single “War Paint!” Yes, attack is an interesting word choice considering that her single is light and summery with non-aggressive tribal beats that drive the song. And, in true 2015 fashion, there’s a banjo on the chorus which results in a mixture of sounds that shouldn’t work as well as they do. It’s this paired with FLETCHER‘s melodic hooks and the song’s soaring breakdown that make this an undeniably addicting pop gem. “War Paint“ turns out to be an anthem that equals way more than the sum of its parts. THIS NEEDS TO BE THE BREAKOUT SONG OF THE SUMMER.
It’s her “plan of attack… love is not the enemy.” YAAAASAS I’m hooked. Bring it on FLETCHER, I’m ready for you.
Look out for FLETCHER‘s debut EP, Finding Fletcher, sometime later this year.
