The record, which will include the previously released and sublime singles ‘Wallflower’ and ‘We Disappear’, is due to be with us on October 14. We’ve been keeping tabs on Ffion for a while now and the young singer-songwriter hasn’t put a foot wrong, nay, she has impressed at every opportunity. If you’re in need of any reassurances to why this impending EP is wonderful news, perhaps take ‘Wallflower’ as a gauge of the delightful sounds Ffion whisks up. Coated in a light sparing, wash of reverb and an infectious use of melody, ‘Wallflower’ is shimmering guitar pop with a slight ’60s twist. Imbued with forlorn sense of melancholic longing, her powerful croon cuts through it’s gentle surroundings, followed closely by a tougher, grittier and meatier guitar-line. There is something compelling in the way Ffion sings, heavily invested emotionally, what she is saying, needs to be heard. Undeniably infectious, and just one reason to look forward to Martha Ffion’s debut EP.
You can check out ‘Wallflower’ & a stripped-back version of ‘We Disappear’ below. Ffion’s debut EP Trip is out on October 14 via Turnstile and she’s announced a load of UK live dates for October too – check them here.
