Estella Dawn Shares New Single ‘Pretty’

New Zealand born, Colorado-based singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Estella Dawn has just shared her brand new single Pretty, a lovely indie-pop song about feeling confident in your own skin, out now via Purplestar Records. 
I am a fan of Estella Dawn's rich tone and how passionate her vocal delivery is, soaring beautifully over the warm melodies. Even though the song is titled Pretty, it's not a song about looks but one about feeling confident and comfortable in your own skin. This positive message is wrapped around a memorable production with luscious piano chords nicely intertwined with steady percussion and cool guitar riffs. I adore her dynamic vocal range, how easily she hits those high notes and how the song has an overall warm, feel-good atmosphere perfect to get you in a good mood. Accompanying the release, Estella Dawn has shared its captivating music video which you can check out below!



Speaking about the song, Estella Dawn said,
This song has nothing to do with aesthetics, being attractive, is in my opinion the least interesting thing about a person BUT feeling confident, comfortable and empowered in your body is important, to me that is true beauty. It would be nice to feel great about yourself every day but life can, at times, have a tendency to make you feel small and inadequate. It’s especially easy now with the addition of social media, comparing your body and life to the bodies and lives of “perfect” people online can be soul crushing. It can leave you feeling like all that you are isn’t enough. That’s when you need someone to lift you up. You need kind words when you’re unable to speak them to yourself, you need reassurance when you’re feeling discouraged. You need a reminder that you’re a bad ass and that you should never shrink to make others comfortable, because you’re not “too much” you’re just enough.
