In just a few seconds, Jenny Lascelles’ raw and melancholic vocals take you deep into a world of uncertainty and unease. In her latest single Strange Weather, singer-songwriter and pianist Lascelles explores the issue of climate change and how it is affecting our mental health. Opening in a wistful haze, the addition of clashing grungy guitars and dissonant chords introduce a note of threat that illustrates the song’s message effectively. Though her vocals are gentle and understated, there’s an emotional fragility that makes this a compelling listen.

Building to a heavier, discordant climax, Lascelles leaves the song hanging in the air – a fitting conclusion for a topic that continues to cause many a sleepless night.
