Sounds: FADWA // Balloon

Singer-songwriter FADWA meshes folk-pop with jazzy undertones in new single “Balloon.” The elusive singer and guitarist of FADWA (whose first name is Fadwa) hails from Casablanca, Morocco. With smoky vocals reminiscent of Florence Welch, Regina Spektor, and Natalie Merchant, the track will make you want to light up a cigarette.

“I float so high
High so high
Can’t come down
I lose my mind
I can’t find
Oh find my way down.”

The song has intense lyricism with poignantly strummed minor chords on her acoustic guitar, leaving listeners floating. Deflate some stress and stream “Balloon” here:
