London’s Arctic Lake hasn’t been around for very long, but with good reason they’re already catching the ears of critics and new fans alike. Arctic Lake’s second release “Only Me” further cements their skill in creating haunting and sentimental tunes that ebb into a subtle endearing power.
With an emotionally spectral and pure voice Emma Foster drifts in and out in an elusive teasing manner which creates the perfect vocals to anchor the melodies of the song. With moments of tranquil bliss and persistent strings of clear softness, “Only Me” is a heart tugging plea that carries itself through with well-rounded composition that manages to be consistent and unpredictable at the same time. The calm yearning undertones create an air of sweet and honest vulnerability.
