Essie Holt keeps on shining with ‘Better For You’

ESSIE HOLT‘s latest offering ‘Better For You’ is the sort of poptimism the world needs right now. It’s a song that grabs your attention immediately and never lets it go. If only for a moment, listening to ‘Better For You’ helps us be starry eyed and see the world through rose coloured glasses in a world where everything seems pretty bleak.

Much like previous single ‘Magnetise’, the song radiates hope from the very beginning. The glistening synths that keep the song afloat act as the perfect raft for Essie Holt‘s gorgeous voice to sit on. Her verses flow elegantly, as she understands she doesn’t need her voice to boom just to make it resonate. By the time the chorus and the beat hits, she’s standing up, fist in the air. It’s that sweet moment of euphoria that you wait for in a song like ‘Better For You’, and Essie Holt made sure the wait was worth it.

Essie Holt proves she’s two for two with glittering pop optimism with ‘Better For You’. It’s one of those songs you’ll put on with the top down, or as an instant pick-me-up. It has the crispness of winter, and the freedom of summer. ‘Better For You’ is a song for anyone, anywhere and at any time, and Essie Holt couldn’t have dropped it sooner. Now to wait for her debut EP, expected to come early 2019.
