Compiling her every changing emotions just like seasons, Netherland's R&B/pop singer Ann King releases a new EP Fake Flowers. An artist who unapologetically wears her heart on her sleeve, the EP goes knee-deep into smooth R&B making us feel the bitterness of break-ups, followed by ballads to soothe the soul. As we dig further into the EP we sense a dash of pop to renew the desire to take chances and country music to lift spirits.
Each track showcases King in varying styles that dictate the eclectic nature of life and genuine lyrics written by the artist herself. She has had the strength to open up and thanks to that, we all feel less lonely going through this daunting experience called life.
“I have never released music that is so personal and honest, it makes me feel really vulnerable. I really hope my music can touch someone’s heart and help them in a way.”
The story behind the EP starts at a waiting room where a burnt-out King found herself. Her thoughts were wild trying to escape an unavoidable dreadful therapy session. Her eyes transcended on a vase, her heart sunk at the thought of how fake the flowers were there, and how everything else didn’t feel real. Everything was not OK and the singer realised she did not want to pretend anymore. Providing inspiration behind her latest EP, ‘Fake Flowers’, a quest for meaning and acceptance.
