Looking For Consummate Pop From A Singer You May Have Totally Missed? Check For ‘Finding Fletcher -EP’
In the vein of mid career Katy Perry, Sia at her height, and Alessia Cara at her debut popularity, I find the music of FLETCHER to be pretty well produced and the singer’s voice to be up there with such a group of contemporaries. Granted, here she doesn’t hit all of the more unique notes Sia can hit, or reach Demi Lovato’s more soulful deliveries for that matter, but in the case of showing up and showing out, I think she totally succeeds on Finding Fletcher – EP, especially since this is a debut that contains arrangements comparable with Sia’s big beat tribal drum aesthetic, and melodies that are so much more fascinating than Lovato’s to my ears. I think a few of these songs could have been hit Katy Perry melodies to sing over, and though Alessia Cara infused more of a downtempo introspective R&B with her debut work, the epic motivational sound herein is almost identical. This album came out in late 2016, so - right about the time of other similar explosive works, and upon listening to it several times, I am pretty surprised that there wasn’t a ton of fanfare to my knowledge, and I haven’t heard much about her in all this time. There are a ton of Pop artists competing for the same sound, so perhaps she will go another round soon, yet for a current playlist, I find that Finding Fletcher – EP is very deserving of attention.
