A talented young artist who has been making waves ever since she moved to the United States, Estella Dawn has a style that is all of her own making. With thirteen singles to her name, Estella has developed a bold and innovative style that perfectly illustrates her unique command of melodies and penchant for personal and social exploration. Soulful, soothing, and undeniably expressive, Estella has laid the foundation for an unparalleled musical legacy, and her latest single ‘Pretty’ is another vibrant chapter.
A gorgeous pop ballad that reinforces the idea that social media can leave you feeling like all that you aren’t enough, ‘Pretty’ delivers a gorgeous blend of vocal and instrumental harmonies that perfectly balance the honest and authentic lyrics. Built on a driven piano melody that immediately sets the tone for the song, everything about ‘Pretty’ is built to be experienced, rather than just heard.
From the drifting, airy melody that flickers and fades, Estella’s vocals are sultry, soulful and perfect placed, creating a golden thread that carries her lyrics perfectly. More than just another pop ballad, ‘Pretty’ is heartfelt and built to inspire, combining heart and soul with a unique creative vision to create one of the most charming and accessible singles of the year.
Speaking openly about the new single, Estella explained, “This song has nothing to do with aesthetics or being attractive. In my opinion, that’s the least interesting thing about a person. But feeling confident, comfortable and empowered in your body is important. To me, that is true beauty.” She continued, “You need kind words when you’re unable to speak them to yourself, you need reassurance when you’re feeling discouraged. You need a reminder that you’re a badass and that you should never shrink to make others comfortable because you’re not ‘too much’ you’re just enough.”
Easily one of the most impressive and inspirational singles of the year so far, ‘Pretty’ is original, enchanting, and perfectly produced, making it a true anthem for the modern age. You can stream the new single above alongside the official music video.
Following on from ‘Pretty’, Estella will be releasing another hotly anticipated single in the form of ‘Cotton Candy’, which is set to drop later this year. She’s also currently in pre-production for her debut full-length album, writing and arranging tracks that are sure to impress.
