Single Review: Charlotte Church – ‘Snow’

2 min read

Child prodigy turned pop princess Charlotte Church releases her latest single this week. Snow is the third single to be released from Church’s sophomore pop record, Back To Scratch and follows the albums first two singles, Back to Scratch and Logical World.

CharlotteChurchSnowThough Church traded in her Classical legacy for a life of pop fantasy back in 2005 when she released her first pop record Tissues and Issues, the singer still at times shows inflections of her roots in the vocals of some of her later tracks. Snow is one of those tracks and is an acoustically sweet number for Church that compliments the singers classical training with her adopted pop genre.

The tone of Snow is quite melancholic and is accompanied by a syrupy string section, courtesy of the Vulcan String Quartet, and an almost flamenco tinged guitar backdrop.

Vocally heavy, Church is as strong as she has ever been and her voice resonates throughout the single as she sings of a year playing in the snow with that special someone in the final days of a relationship on the rocks. A little lighter than her previous pop outings the track holds well in the Church catalogue and adds a sentimental touch to the parent record.
