Track of the Day #129: Martha Ffion – Wallflower

Posted by Neil Wilson

Martha Ffion - Wallflower
With a sound that belongs as much to the classic ’60’s pop era as it does to the chamber pop sound of bands like Camera Obscura and She & Him, Wallflower further cements the credentials of Martha Ffion.

Following on from her previous single So Long; which made our Best Tracks of 2015; the Glasgow based singer sticks with what gained the support of 6Music‘s Marc Riley and Mary Ann Hobbs.  Shimmering guitars lead the way, with delicate and careful percussion.  The smooth and sophisticated production is what garners the references to the Baroque style of The Beach Boys and The Beatles, yet it is the harmonic and relatable edge to Claire McKay’s voice that captures the heart.  With music like this, there’s no chance of Martha Ffion blending into the background like the titular wallflower.
