New-Zealand pop talent Navvy is proud to release her new single, ‘Pieces’, produced by Starsmith. (Jessie Ware, Jess Glynne, Dermot Kennedy) ‘Pieces’ shows again Navvy’s ability to pick apart complex emotions within the confines of a pop song. Her vocal tone is comparable to Ke$ha, but with seemingly more memorable melodies and more powerful range.
The low bass arp sound starts off the song before being joined by the chords and tastefully layered vocoder vocals. The chorus has an easy to follow rhyme scheme for her already relatable tune.
This striking new talent emerged last summer, just months after the sudden collapse of a four-year-relationship, with an EP titled ‘The Breakup’. By the end of the year she’d released the ‘No Hard Feelings’ EP, and her deluge of electronic pop now takes a fresh turn with ‘Pieces’, a song where Navvy reframes the previous year’s difficulties in a remarkably philosophical manner.
“It was a messed up time in my life,” she acknowledges, “but now I simply feel lucky to have loved so hard that losing it felt so horrible.”
