Billie Marten - 'Writing Of Blues And Yellows'

8/10

A lot of hype has been surrounding the young Miss Marten throughout 2016, naming her one of the best new folk singers in British music. While what we have heard so far certainly fits that bill, the now 17-year-old delivers her debut album 'Writing Of Blues And Yellows', a record that shows maturity reaching far beyond her years.

Her simple disposition towards production allows her voice to take centre stage on this release, making a far more powerful and personal album than we have seen from some of her peers in the last few years. With a calm and tranquil flow, Marten presents us with one soothing serenade after the next, showing that she has not only found her sound at such a young age, but has managed to master it as well.

An effortless performance from one of the most promising new acts we have heard in years. Billie Marten may not have received the attention she deserves yet, but this album definitely sends a message to the industry that there is a new girl in town.
