Review: "Oceans Apart" - Fran Lusty

Fran Lusty has created an impactful folk song that can let us feel the pain of a long distance relationship. “Oceans Apart” takes on an enchanting sense of vulnerability and allows us to feel the pain of being away from someone you love. We first feel this pain when Fran tells about their mother and father saying to waste time on someone. The tension builds throughout the song, but the love continues to grow. By the end Fran sings “Oceans, I know that this is hard. Oceans but we can make this work”. We can all feel this sense of hurt, but also within this tender pain there is also a feeling of growth in knowing that they are going to do everything they can to make it work.

The beautiful song has an engaging sense of fluidity, letting us float through each line like we are in an ocean. Feeling the pain within the notes, but softly letting us melt and drift along with Fran as she sings. The gentle strum of the guitar builds in a fast way, making you feel like you are sitting in a car looking through the window as you drive. Getting faster with each strum and picking up with the ongoing build up of added instruments, this song has a full and warm sound. As we approach the middle Frans voice grows, allowing us to follow her sound with every word. By the end you are captivated, still along for the drive but feeling like you have pulled into your destination. Far away, but the love and the beauty of this sound still sends a chill down your spine.

Young Fran Lusty is a folk singer/songwriter who is based in London. Creating charming and melodic music that was originally intended for close friends and family to hear. Fran is inspired by mystery, found in nature in particular. Finding such inspirations at her grandmother's cabin in Norway, Fran is able to harness this and use her wonderful storytelling abilities to create soft and magical music. This young artist has just begun, with a handful of songs to her name she won’t stop here. We cannot wait to see what Fran will bring us next, so be on the lookout for more new music just as dazzling as “Oceans Apart”!
