There’s nothing hard about loving Drew and her new single Hard To Love. In fact, we’ve fell head over heels for the song the moment her robustly potent, deep sonorous voice hit our ears in its opening bars. The Danish-Welsh siren delivers a fiery punch with the dynamic track, which melds stringy strums with dark sinuous electronic production. Drew, formerly one half of DrewXHILL, graced IHM with her solo debut over two years ago before disappearing for quite some time. But it feels like she’s here to stay this time around as she scintillates us with her R&B pop on heavy hitting Hard To Love. At least, we sure hope so.

I feel like I’ve been sharing a bounteous amount of splendid new music out of Denmark as of late. Not to be missed out of the bunch is Drew’s solo debut, Runner, a sweeping swathe of R&B inflected electronic pop produced by K-birrrd. Drew is actually one half of duo DREWXHILL, and her first release away from that project is a riveting and bold burst of dramatic, heart pummeling intensity. I’m left wondering if we’ll be hearing more from Drew solo, considering the impact of this magnificent tune. Obviously, I’m hoping that we will.

UK duo DREWXHILL has me melting helplessly to the ethereal gracefulness and soft sensuality of their rework of Olivia Chaney’s Imperfections, from the folk artist’s recent album The Longest River. The duo consider Olivia Chaney one of the most talented musicians they had the pleasure to see live, and having had Olivia’s album on repeat for months has lead them to an inevitable cover of Imperfections. Their love for the song is obvious on the breathtaking cover, a grandly atmospheric and bleakly minimalist alt electronic interpretation with intensely booming drums and incredibly emotional vocals. I find no imperfections here, all I hear is impeccable beauty.
