Back with another folk-pop indie anthem, singer-songwriter thea wang’s latest single, ‘Word On The Street’, opens up with enchanting finger-picked riffs and beautiful vocals. The fourth single from her upcoming debut album, this new track is thea at her most solemn and down to earth, described as a track for days when you don’t feel right.
This downcast feeling is based off of a specific time thea experienced it herself: “I wrote this one after moving to Copenhagen, and biking in the rain and wind every day, feeling like it would never stop. Then I went to London to write with Jørgen Kasbo, guitar player, that same autumn. There it was sunny with blue skies. After it had been sooo grey and cloudy and rainy in Copenhagen for a period that felt like a lifetime, I felt the sun and blue skies again. My mind had soaked up all the bad weather, and this song just fell out in a second.”
A calming instrumental that pairs wonderfully with thea’s tones, ‘Word On The Street’ showcases how the Norwegian artist can convey endless emotion through her heartbreaking lyrics and biographical style. With her album coming later this year, thea is looking to push further towards a wider audience.
