Review: "Trust Fund Baby" - FLEUR ROUGE
"Trust Fund Baby" is the first of four tracks featured on FLEUR ROUGE's upcoming EP. The fresh new single is a quirky and cheeky new addition to the electropop world. It follows FLEUR's usual songwriting style, drawing inspiration from her personal life and experiences. In a fun, playful way, "Trust Fund Baby" explores FLEUR's life growing up alongside more privileged people. The song's narrative takes a hard look at the advantages that come with higher social statuses and wealth, while the music keeps things more lighthearted and lively. A solid mix of catchy and bold, "Trust Fund Baby" is the perfect beginning to FLEUR's future EP.
FLEUR ROUGE deviates a bit from her previous work, trading in her characteristic gritty beats and intense melodies for a more chill commercial pop vibe. The track is filled with prominent beats and edgy sounds, giving "Trust Fund Baby" an edgy, infectious soundscape. FLEUR's vocals range from dark and sultry to light and whispy, delivering unforgettable melodies. In her lower register, her voice is on par with artists like Banks or Billie Eilish, but when she crosses into her upper register, her voice takes on a quality comparable to Halsey. The nuanced sound created in "Trust Fund Baby" is reminiscent of many BANKS tracks, including "Lovesick," "Trainwreck," and "Gimme."
FLEUR ROUGE, a half English and half French singer-songwriter, has made a fiery entrance into the music industry. Her first release was "Growing Pains," gracing our ears at the end of Feburary 2020. She has gained support from the likes of BBC's Music Introducing in Manchester and Spotify's editorial team, placing "Growing Pains" on Spotify's New Pop UK playlist. After her debut, FLEUR released a number of singles between 2020 and now, including "SHE," "Hype," "Gameboy," "What Makes You Think I Care?," and "Wasteland." FLEUR has cited several artists that serve as her creative inspiration. Some of those include Christine and the Queens, Lorde, Billie Eilish, and BANKS.
