For Fans Of: Ellie Goulding / Marina & The Diamonds
American folk-pop singer Lissie is back with her second full-length album Back To Forever. With powerful vocals reminiscent of Stevie Nicks (particularly in “Further Away (Romance Police)”), Lissie offers listeners a fun and upbeat new album. After opening for Ellie Goulding on her 2010 tour and winning iTunes UK Top Song of the Year the same year for “When I’m Alone”, this follow-up album has been long awaited.
Lissie’s synthesis of classic pop elements and folk-esque vocals bring something to the table much looked for in current top 40 music. Standouts on this album for me included “Mountaintop Removal”, and the album’s title-bearing song “Back To Forever.” With the growing popularity of alternative folk in current music through bands like The Lumineers and Imagine Dragons taking over the charts, it won’t be long before Lissie is on her way to joining their ranks as some of today’s most played music. So if you want to get a jump on the next big thing in popular music, pick up Lissie’s Back To Forever now.
