London’s Francesca Louise has released a new track, Out of Sight (Out of Mind), which narrates becoming dependent on love and the denial of feelings due to the fear of vulnerability and potential heart-break. The Fountain caught up with Francesca to discuss the single in more depth.
TF: You have a new single out, what has the reception been like to Out of Sight?
The reception to Out of Sight (Out of Mind) has been wonderful. I’ve had so many people message me to say how much the song has resonated with them and how they find themselves humming along to it at home.
TF: How would you sum it up in one sentence?
It’s so humbling to hear that my music has an effect on others and that people are investing in what I create.
TF: Who do you look to and idolise when it comes to influences?
Influences stretch from Carole King and Joni Mitchell back in the 70s all the way to more recent artists such as Lucy Rose and The Staves. Carole King was an incredible song-writer and arranger and Joni’s honesty is so refreshing. Lucy Rose is a young Joni, whilst The Staves create such ambient music that really sits with me long after I’ve listened to it.
TF: What is your plan for the remainder of the year, after this single release?
Plans for the remainder of the year are big! We have an EP coming out at the end of July, plus exciting content to add for the release! I will be out (or in!) playing live gigs and there will be more music to be released by the end of the year. 2020 is busy, so stay tuned!
