We’ve all been there before. You’re in a relationship and things are going great, and then suddenly, out of nowhere, it ends. It’s painful and confusing, and you’re left with nothing but questions.
Katherine Nora sings about this experience in her new single, sycamore. She co-wrote it with her friend and collaborator Lucy Barka, and it’s the second release that she’s produced with Joey Walker. The song stays true to Katherine’s organic and atmospheric signature sound, with influences such as Maggie Rogers, Lizzy McAlpine and Sara Bareilles creeping in.
One of the things that makes Katherine’s vocals so special is her phrasing. When you listen to sycamore, you’ll notice that she takes her time to make each syllable count. This might not seem like a big deal, but it’s actually quite rare to find a singer who takes such care with their enunciation.
