Two weeks ago, I had the pleasure of reviewing Hell Is Only Hell, a song by indie artist Fairhazel. In that write-up, I spoke about the impressive ability he has in creating instantly enjoyable tunes that waste no time in getting to the good stuff. It seems that he hasn’t lost that skill with Flower In My Hand.
With an endearingly beautiful lead vocal, Fairhazel invites the listener into his world. Once again, tongue-in-cheek lyrics give Flower In My Hand a unique sense of humour while remaining honest and sincere. Beginning with sparse and delicate acoustic guitar plucking, the track builds upon itself exponentially, with a delightful sounding bass and huge harmonies. The artist has a rare ability to create music that sounds different with each release while retaining a strong sense of identity throughout.
Fairhazel is fast becoming one of our favourite artists here at Independent Music News, and I can only see this trend continuing. I’ll be here waiting for whatever he brings out next, but for now, I’m going to put Flower In My Hand back on and let the melodies take me away.
