An impeccable fusion of light and shadow, electronica and pop commands our hearts on bittersweet pop aria Keep Me Up from fast rising starlet Charlotte Lawrence. The melancholic aria walks a delicate line between olivia o’brien’s lissome R&B pop and Billie Eilish’s willowy gusting, dreamy ethereal pop. 

“I write easier about sad emotions,” says Charlotte Lawrence. “I think it’s so cool to have an upbeat song with dark lyrics. If you tap into an emotion then you can write a whole story. No matter what you’re going through it’s important to take risks with music. I never want to play it safe.” Keep Me Up definitely doesn’t play it safe. It’s breathtakingly personal, a pop confession that deals directly with mental health in a frank way. “I’ve always had anxiety,” she explains. “It’s not something we talk about a lot but people are being more open about their mental health. I felt it was important to talk about it in my music and help other people who might be struggling.”

Charlotte, who also recently collaborated with Sasha Sloan and Nina Nesbitt on Psychopath, has prepared two full EPs to drop later this year. Stream/download Keep Me Up, here.

I tried really hard to catch Scottish singer songwriter Nina Nesbitt the other day at 1am in Austin for SXSW, honestly. I really did. But I was so exhausted by then that I failed, and I truly regret missing out on the performance. My friends who did make it said it was incredible. Maybe I would have witnessed her performing a rendition of Psychopath live, her new single with Sasha Sloan and Charlotte Lawrence. Psychopath is an enthralling pop ballad with balmy beats and a sweet, tart bite. The song, which is part of Spotify’s Louder Together program, arrives just as Nina Nesbitt is preparing to head out on tour with Jake Bugg.
