Alela Diane - "The Way We Fall"

New MusicNicholas KindrachukComment

There are certain singers that can just make you feel like you floating off your chair when you listen to them with the sheer quality of their voice, Alela Diane has just done that for me.

She has all of the qualities of a smokey blues singer that one would see at a high-end piano bar in Goodfellas, but she is more distinct than that with some smooth, rootsy production to accompany her as well. For me, it's really all in the voice in this one it's the kind of singing that can get straight into your heart--and break it. There is a clear moment in this track with the mood transition about halfway through. Enjoy!
