Hero Fisher. “Wow, cool artist name” you think. Nope, it’s her real name, now that’s cool.
The British-born, French-raised and London-based singer has an intriguing CV so far, including collaborating with Alison Mosshart and Boy George in the Mark Ronson-scored ballet Carbon Life, open for The Rolling Stones and Neil Young at Hyde Park, and get shortlisted for the 2014 Glastonbury Emerging Talent Prize. Impressive eh?
But we’re not here to talk about the past, we’re here for the future, which today we bring you in the form of Fisher’s brand new single ‘I Let Love’. A track full of momentum and intense energy, Fisher’s soulful and passionate vocal pulls you through the intricate layers of soft and subtle guitars and percussion that form the base of this strong first single.
Fisher said about the track;
I wanted to write a song where the focus jumped from person to person, like a contagion. The idea was that each verse would be an ordinary “day in the life of” each character, and that whatever was going on was a banal and daily grind. Each character would be possessed with this spirit, making them push on through, and shake off their demons. “Suck it up and work it [...] never needed no one, I’m the one that got away”. The chorus is more nostalgic, but also about letting things slip off of you in order to survive.
