Listen to Get Free – the debut single from Nashville’s Whissell:


  

Premiering over at Kick Kick Snare this weekend, Get Free is the debut single from Nashville singer-songwriter Whissell, and it’s the perfect vehicle for the newcomer’s bluesy, soul-steeped vocals. 
Lyrically, the song sees Whissell singing about taking ownership and escaping from a controlling relationship, with the destructive scenario set up with crystal clarity from the offset. 

You hold me like you want me to stay / you only want to keep me from running away,” she reflects on the song’s opening couplet, whilst a backdrop of thumping percussion beats and shadowy guitar strums add an eerie layer of foreboding drama to the atmosphere. 

Preceded by a determined refusal to let her spurned beau get to have it his way, Whissell emerges as a dominant force to be reckoned with on the song’s explosive and propelling chorus, where her smoky tones are joined by a rally of silence-shattering calls. 

A surprise farewell serenade adds bittersweet beauty to the drama in the song’s final third, drawing even more attention to the armoury of full-bodied vocal talent that Whissell has at her disposal. As debut singles go, this Tennessee talent has absolutely nailed it and we absolutely can’t wait to hear more from her.
