Wrapped in her lush alt-pop sounds, EVER—the moniker of London-based artist Louise Smith—releases her new single "Counting Flowers". Both delicate and intimate, the track harnesses the power of EVER's vocal talents to create a track that evokes real emotion. And if you think you recognise her voice, her sleek alt-pop was featured a number of times during ITV's Love Island (UK).
Laced with intimate sonics, the single is dedicated to the often unavoidable change that time brings. Awash with soft melodies and placid guitar lines, "Counting Flowers" whispers sweet rhythms into your life. Telling us about the single, EVER says: ‘“Counting Flowers is very much inspired by the role reversal that takes place when loved ones get older. The lyrics narrate the relationship I’ve had with my Grandmother, who’s always been a strong female figure in my life. She nurtured me from a baby, right through adulthood. I have been shaped by her values and unconditional love. This song is a love letter to her."
With its dainty yet intricate soundscape, "Counting Flowers" is a track that we can all relate to. Moving its listener with honeyed lyrics, EVER's songwriting talents are phenomenal. This single is one that will make EVER one to watch.
"Counting Flowers" is out now via Yada Yada Records.
