Back in June I introduced readers of Breaking More Waves to MAY, one of the most incredible new voices out there.
As part of that post I included a live video of an unreleased song called Falling, which found MAY singing her heart out at a candle lit piano. “Why is she not already a huge star?” I asked.
Now let’s ask the question again. Because MAY has now released a fully recorded studio version of the song. Thankfully it’s not that different to the live version – but it once again gives me the opportunity to through all the superlatives in the English Dictionary at it. For Falling is stunning. A sensitive account of love that’s never been replaced, it’s stark, ghostly and will grab at your heart.
Falling is taken from a forthcoming EP where MAY has collaborated with the likes of Tom Elmhirst (Adele, Amy Winehouse) and Patrick Wimberley (Solange, MGMT). Get ready to fall in love with her voice and songs.
