Top Tracks: Pearla – Somewhere

Following on from her debut EP If You’re Not Alright Now, New York based singer/songwriter Pearla is back with her new single. ‘Somewhere’ talks about feeling lost in this crazy world, and about having little control over the course of your life. With its music box melody and Pearla’s delicate vocals it begins with an air of childlike innocence, with the haphazard electronic drums echoing in the background like it’s part of another world that we are mostly oblivious to. The track soon builds into a full cacophonous wall-of-sound, like facing the harsh realities of the world, before it all settles down again by the track’s closing moments. It’s like a journey through the course of a lifetime in a single song, and like life it is made to be savoured.
