Back in 2018 I’d be lying if I said that I didn’t listen to Hailey Knox’s Hardwired Mixtape on repeat everyday for almost a month solid. Her celestial voice mixed with the raw characteristics of the production just spoke to me in a rathe unique way and got me fascinated by her pensive lyricisms that weaved a beautiful narrative that make me feel like I was in a movie theatre by just closing my eyes. She’s got that special something to her songs that you can’t put a finger on, you just know there’s an undeniable flair and passion that draws you into the swirling soundscape she crafts with divine precision.
Her latest single, a boy named pluto, sees her venture into new territories that she’d previously left uncharted with the track sound like something you’d expect to hear on the soundtrack of an arthouse coming of age movie. She maintains her signature lucid vocals throughout as they eloquently delivering these spellbinding lyrics that vividly describe the story of these two young people in such a gorgeous fashion that, as mentioned previously, it feels like you’re watching a movie. This track kick-starts a new exciting adventure for Knox and we have no doubt it’s going to be more than worth a listen.
