Classically Driven: “Subtle” by @AboutPoetry


“Subtle” is an engaging pop song by the new Estonian singer who calls herself About Poetry.  You’re thrust right into its classical influences from the start which might make you think it’s Loreena McKennitt or Sarah McLachlan, and you wouldn’t be far off.  It’s got a beautiful, enchanting piano melody underneath to help keep its story interesting.  The singer herself sounds like a hybrid of Carole King and Regina Spektor, but with a bit of the accent that helps lend charm to the song.  “Subtle” will make you want to hear more from About Poetry, and it comes from her album To Console The Inconsolable, which you can sample and purchase on About Poetry’s Bandcamp site.  Play it alongside UK singer Eurielle’s EP The Incarnation.
