Splinters may be understated and austere, but it packs an emotional punch in its poignant lyrics and 18 year old newcomer Ellie Occleston’s beautifully clarion, ardently moving voice. Her piano ballad feels like an intimate confessional, or a comforting soft gust of wind that gently wraps itself around the heart. The London based folk singer songwriter has reeled us in with her anguished lament, its “splinters” resonating with the splinters we carry in our own hearts.  The debut is undeniably bittersweet, yet such a euphoniously stirring stunner. Grab the gorgeous song from iTunes, here.
