Here at TSIS, there’s nothing we love more than discovering the best rising artists and giving them on a spotlight. Today we’re stoked to announce we’ve found one of the hottest new producers from Scotland: Fourth Daughter. Her new track “Take The Fall” is an instant repeat listen.
Fourth Daughter’s gorgeous, confident voice takes center stage as she builds up the backing production. Currents of synth simmer under the surface of the song, working in tandem with airy washes of chimes to build to a crescendo. The drop on the chorus breaks the surface tension of the track with a crash of percussion and a dark, grungy bass line. The pulses of synth Fourth Daughter adds on the chorus act as a nice balance to the lightness of the verse.
Here’s what the Scottish artist had to say about her new track:
“The mental torture of trying to take up your own space in places where it sometimes doesn’t feel so easy to do so out of being too shy/not wanting to make a mistake. It’s like an internal dialogue of wanting to be yourself but being too afraid of what other people might think, and the yo-yo self encouragement/self doubt debates that come with that. I was having a pretty bad day the day I wrote it so I think it was all pretty anecdotal of what I was feeling at the time. It was my first trip down to London to write with Paul Whalley who later went on to produce the entire EP and so I think the mix of feeling overwhelmed in a new place with new people fed its way into the song too.”
We’re absolutely loving Fourth Daughter’s refreshing sound. Her debut EP HYPERREAL comes out in June. In the meantime, we definitely recommend listening to “Take The Fall” below. Enjoy!
