The Edinburgh music scene has, for a long time, been home to some of the jewels of independent music who have gone on to do great things around the world. There’s must be something in the water up there, as the latest off that beautiful city’s production line is the ethereal Rachel Alice Johnson.
New single ‘Pieces of Me’, out now, is a pure pop track in the best sense. It shows that Johnson, described more as a rocker than anything else, is more than a one trick pony. There are subtle complexities at play here, making for a quietly infectious jewel of a song.
