Song: Hideaway

Artist: Rebecca Lowe

Genre: Indie Pop/Singer Songwriter

This week’s Songperk pick features an emotional ballad Hideaway by singer-songwriter and indie pop artist Rebecca Lowe. The track has silky smooth vocals by Rebecca accompanied by some flowing piano work – making it a delight to listen to. The percussions and the strings come together at the end to create some perfect melodrama. The arrangements are pretty textbook – but not in a bad way and indeed work for the best. Piano ballads generally have this easy-flowing, rich feel to them – a celebration of the piano’s majesty and its ability to carry a song forward – along with other parts of the orchestra. Hideaway is a perfect example of one.
