Today’s Hear This! track is Don’t Worry About Me by Frances. The Oxford-born singer-songwriter has been shortlisted for the Brit Awards Critics Choice Award and for the BBC Sound of Britain 2016 so she’s definitely one to watch. She’s also performing at Coachella this weekend!
Now it’s not often that I fall for a slower song – I’m generally in the mood for something with more of a beat – but this track is a simply beautiful listen. You simply cannot fail to fall for it. It’s such a simple song, but Frances’ raw, emotional vocals really make it. There’s no musical backing at all during the first verse – just Frances – and she’s accompanied only by a soft, unobtrusive piano for the remainder of the song. This one’s going to get you!
