Anthemic single ‘I Let Love’ marks the next chapter in this multifaceted singer-songwriter’s career. Hero Fisher (not a stage name) tells stories in a way that puts her alongside leading figures of the craft. Most of all folk singer Jeff Buckley, Patti Smith and PJ Harvey.
So far her interesting career includes opening for The Rolling Stones and Neil Young. And collaborating with Alison Mosshart and Boy George for a Mark Ronson-scored ballet. Consequently, these early landmark events prove that this is an artist who is developing rapidly.
‘I Let Love’ is a complex tapestry, one that sews together a telling narrative and a delicate composition. Every element of the song inhabits its own space, allowing the vocals to stand out over the piano and drums.
The song is stark and stormy and the lyrics pack a punch; a slice of reality. Hero Fisher is an explorer, one that is constantly asking questions of herself, her creativity and of the world around her. This is a trait of a great singer. Therefore, Fisher gets into the cracks of life and describes every detail no matter how sordid or ugly. The video also hides some quirky nuances that can be interpreted in a few different ways. But I’ll leave that up to you.
