Track of the Day: Kingston by Faye Webster
Faye Webster shares lustrous new single “Kingston”
After releasing her polished self-titled sophomore album in May last year, Faye Webster has returned with easy-listening aplomb on new track “Kingston”, a wonderfully woozy love song that thrives amidst the stripped-back atmosphere of the record.
Born into a musically talented family and raised within the creative confines of the illustrious Atlanta music scene, Webster has not been shy in making the most of her advantageous surroundings. From self-releasing her folk themed debut album “Run and Tell” at just 16, to featuring on Hip-Hop tracks with Atlanta natives Ethereal and Lord Narf after signing with the far-from-folk-familiar Awful Records, Faye Webster’s musical education has been eclectic in the truest sense of the word.
With a budding photography career to boot, the effects of these brilliantly diverse experiences can be heard on the smooth, self-assured “Kingston”. Armed with an infectious confidence in her artistic direction, her love-struck vocals flow effortlessly over the instrumental that by the end of the song you can’t quite remember how you got here, such is the relaxing rate with which the song drifts along at. It is a sound that is completely at one with its message, perfectly encapsulating the hazy detachment from the real world that often follows falling in love.
