‘Angel Fire,’ the first single from her forthcoming third album, exudes laid-back summer vibes with a confident, soulful pop flair. Hot brass, seductive synths and a spritely percussive foundation pave the way for Hollie Cook’s alluring vocals, as they muse and meander through her nostalgic ruminations on love and desire.
Having previously drawn comparisons to notable reggae singers Janet Kay and Phyllis Dillon alongside iconic ’60s girl groups such as The Shangri-Las and The Ronettes, Cook’s sound continues to evolve as she effortlessly intertwines contemporary influences with her beautiful nostalgic soul.
‘Angel Fire’ sees Hollie’s first collaboration with famed producer Martin ‘Youth’ Glover (U2, Guns N’ Roses, Paul McCartney, The Verve) who expertly echoes Hollie’s dulcet tones with equally soothing and infectious sounds. Youth on their recent collaboration:
“I’m very honoured to work with Hollie, one of the most exciting emerging singers and writers over the last ten years. Hollie combines seductive and wistful melodies, underpinned with some sharp lyrical observations and clever word play combined with an exquisite and informed pop sensibility… It was a pleasure to work with an artist with such high-caliber criteria and vision.”
