UK based singer-songwriter and innovate artist, Francine Belle, released her debut single along with a music video for her brand new track, ‘Beautiful Heights’ released via Golden Ratio Records. Of the latest release, tastemaker publication FGUK said “The new track has a unique distinct feelgood factor that is only elevated by her candy pink backdrops and flower fields.”
A true appreciator of progressive and dynamic pop, Francine Belle cites Beyonce, Lana Del Rey, Florence & The Machine, SZA and Michael Jackson as part of her influences. In ‘Beautiful Heights’, Francine Belle displays not only her exceptional vocal talents, but her thoughtful lyric-writing too; the lyrics, “Lucky lovers we’re riding on the sky above us / We’re shedding all our earthly anchors / The only way is up,” are poignant and uplifting and mirror the mood of the song’s layered vocals that flawlessly fall over one another. Her sound incorporates strong and soaring vocal melodies comparable to the work of soulful pop icon Solange Knowles, combined with a quirky aesthetic and sound similar to Sia. Francine Belle is the musician writing pop music that transcends the everyday optimism of pop songs that have come before it; instead, she transforms pop into high art using intelligent song design, beautifully executed vocal lines and exciting rhythms.
Francine Belle’s ‘Beautiful Heights’ sees Belle deliver a powerful vocal performance only complimented by her dazzling music video and stunning wardrobe changes. As far as debuts go, this is strong, making us very excited to see what the future holds for this up and coming superstar!
