“Please don’t look at me like I’m a ghost/I’m a skeleton that used to be your listening post” opines Martha Ffion over this tremulous slice of splendid 60s flecked guitar pop. Swooning with understated heartbreak, ‘So Long’ is like some wonderful lost Everly Brothers classic as played by Camera Obscura. Shivering on the wings of glistening, chiming guitars and dappling rhythms, Martha’s voice is as bittersweet as liquid gold cider: each intonation bristling with the conflicted sorrow of a love turned sour.
Martha Ffion is based in Glasgow and ‘So Long’ is her first single since announcing she has signed with Turnstile Records.
She plays the following upcoming shows:
19th November – The Eagle, Salford
27th November – The Waiting Rooms, London
28th November – The Moon Club, Cardiff
