A few months ago Adam from “songsfortheday”, discovered a voice we immediately knew we would never forget. It’s rare to hit play on a track and instantly everything else around you fades away. Such is the case with the completely hypnotic and memorizing presence that Talitha Ferri presents.

Now more than ever, the world is looking for ways to escape, even just momentarily into a different headspace or mood. With each new track that is released, Ferri easily enthralls the listener in an immersive experience of unmatched beauty brushed with love, loss and pain. Even more remarkable than her powerful yet delicate vocals are the transparent and revealing nature of her lyrics, which revolve around her own struggles with mental health issues. Ferri’s third single, “Porcelain”.

The Copenhagen-based singer-songwriter uses subtlety to evoke powerful emotions. With just her acoustic harmonies, a simple guitar, and a captivating violin, “Porcelain” personifies brittle beauty. The song follows Ferri spiraling in and out of depression, and she explains the strange reality of the guilt associated with feeling bad, yet everything around her is so good.

I’m conscious that right now we need something that brightens things a little, that can be reflective but see some optimism in the world situation. Talitha Ferri seems to hit that balance pretty well with her new song ‘The Sadness Lasts Forever’, the 2nd song released in the lead up to her album which is due out in May. Talitha previously, a Danish / American songwriter based in Copenhagen, who released her track ‘Home’ through the ‘Soulpod Collective’ last month. ‘Home’ was an impressive opener, but ‘The Sadness Lasts Forever’ soars to another level, courtesy of those vocals, which have such assured purity and confidence, that I promise you will believe everything she says.  ”You’ll be alright, despite the pouring rain” she tells us at the start, and that’s kind of good to know.

Instrumentally the song uses stripped back support, with just acoustic guitar and a violin, which both creep in and then build with the song, with the violin matching the vocals for their contrasting mix of melancholy and upbeat musical phrasing. The lengthy instrumental section is nice enough, and although it loses my attention slightly just before it returns to the main musical theme, overall I like the balance of Talitha Ferri’s songwriting and musical arrangements.
