Music is a way to tackle unresolved issues and reach out to the ones you love, both for a writer and listener.
Caswell is doing just that with a very open letter to her ‘Brother’.
As you would expect, it’s powerful and engaging, as Caswell’s unmistakable, ethereal vocals form a distinct jazz melody over a Whirlitzer piano and Mellotron, and the sudden waves of heavy synths and brass, push and pull the listener through the journey with her.
Cleverly the production at the start and end of the track also emulates that of a typewriter.
Disclosure: I am Caswell’s publicist at the time of writing.
Sounds like: Låpsley, Skott, Lorde, Charlotte Cardin, Jorja Smith, JONES, Ray BLK, Sigrid, Maggie Rogers

It’s rare these days that music can hit you hard in your core, but Anna Pancaldi has managed to do that with her piano-led ‘Brother’.
As you would expect, ‘Brother’ covers a highly emotional subject, exploring the reality of loss.
