This isn’t the first time that I’ve posted about Canadian newcomer Ali Milner aka WILLA. Her brooding brand of electro pop first caught my attention at the end of 2014 when she released her debut single Stay the Night and she reemerged only a few months back with the equally-as-impressive follow up Dreamers.
Not one to be pigeon-holed though, new single Swan is a complete 360 from her previous; a loud blast of electronic blow outs that showcases a more assertive side to the Milner’s impressive form.
Using her raw, gravelly vocals to punch out the track’s rough-around-the-edges narrative about refusing to be put in a box, WILLA’s Swan is as bold a statement about being a newcomer on the scene as it gets and one delivered with a gutsy, don’t-give-a-damn defiance that’ll have you rooting for the Vancouver native.
Take a listen below.
