One of the most difficult feats in music is making complex music sound effortless. On her latest release “A Loveletter, An Improvisation,” pianist and singer-songwriter Marie Dahlstrøm masters the challenge. The new single is the first taste of the Danish, London-based artist’s debut full-length album due out in 2020. The track provides a fitting showcase of her warm musical style and exceptional musicianship in her vocals as well as on the piano.
Co-written with Conor Albert, Dahlstrøm spontaneously delivered the lyrics in the studio without any foresight. Yet somehow in her understated verses, she still offers a glimpse into raw emotions, as she comes to grips with romance. Dahlstrøm proves to have a special knack for melody. Extending non-lyrical vocal lines and gentle soulful piano solo closing the track. Her captivating voice and lyrics float over the song’s subtle harmonies in a beautifully natural way, allowing the listener to drift away to another plane. Marie Dahlstrøm’s reputation has been on a gradual ascent in recent months. If “A Loveletter, An Improvisation” is any indication, her forthcoming album will take her to new heights.
