There’s a lot to be said about the alt-pop force in waiting, Florence Arman. Like the fact that she enjoys eating two breakfasts to kick off her mornings. Or her prodigious tea intake, one that numbers around 34 cups of PG tips per day.
But really, it comes down to the music. Beautifully melodic constructions that beguile with their simplicity, her literate, playfully innocent pop songs have a rich sense of depth to them. Worth placing next to Maggie Rogers or even Charlotte Lawrence, Florence Arman has a voice of her own, a distinctive path that she intends to follow.
Gorgeous new single ‘Naked’ is the flirtatious opening statement from her new seven-track project, constructed alongside pivotal producer filous and her brother, Sebastian Arman. The lilting background is augmented by plucked guitar notes and fluttering electronics, so suggestive and so nuanced.
‘Naked’ is Florence Arman at her most personal, the breathy vocal discussing the painful consequences of letting someone into her life at an intimate level. It’s a song about vulnerability, about being hurt, but refusing to let those experiences define you.
But it’s also a stunning pop song, a refined, nuanced single, one that is ultra-immediate while also reveling in depth. The perfect starting point for her new seven-track EP, ‘Naked’ is the clearest picture yet of Florence Arman’s stunning potential.
