Album Review: Freya Ridings - Self-Titled



Since 'Lost Without You' featured on 'Love Island', Freya Ridings has been on a meteoric rise to stardom.

The soul-stirring hit, which was released two years ago, is everywhere you go; coffee shops, the gym, shopping malls, and on a certain Australian soap opera (Home and Away).

The flame-haired songstress – whose father Richard voices Daddy Pig in 'Peppa Pig' – can have you in a weeping mess as you get lost in the beauty of her pure, ambient and often ethereal voice powered by heartbreak, one moment, and dancing with joy on the welcome uplifting pop bangers 'Love is Fire' and 'Castles' the next.

Freya - who has been compared to Adele and Florence Welch - has it all, flawless vocals, genius songwriting and a spell-like piano-playing ability, considering she cannot read musical notes due to dyslexia.


★★★★/5
