Following a commanding introductory single ‘May Day’, British singer-songwriter Lissy Taylor shares another personally driven song in the form of ‘Wildflowers’. Much like the preceding track, Taylor’s music combines Americana storytelling with UK indie-rock charisma while balancing her continuously dark-yet-dreamy atmosphere.
The Stoke-on-Trent musicians tells us the meaning behind ‘Wildflowers’:
“It is freedom that you can only give to yourself. It is a celebration of life coming into bloom and forgetting what weighs you down. It is growing to become something far more than what is expected of you. It is allowing yourself to flourish. Are you ready?”
It’s an empowering listen that is complimented by a video filmed in nearby Manchester, featuring the city’s cultural centre Northern Quarter, plentiful graffiti artwork and vibrant skater scene.
