Stefany June: The Beat That My Heart Plays
German singer-songwriter Stephany June's latest release "The Beat That My Heart Plays" is like secretly reading the cool, semi-tortured artistic girl's journal in high school. She's out there feeling all the feelings while you're wondering what outfit to wear to the beer pong party in your neighbor's basement. June says this song just wanted to be written. It was composed for a friend battling depression. It's an intimate tune that's layered and interesting, a combination of soul baring spoken word with a far east hook. June's voice is distinct and quite special. Her voice transitions from breathy to endearing baby voice to darling indie songstress within the same verse. It's the kind of song you'll want to play several times so as to discover a different nuance every time.
