Following a debut year which saw a #1 single, #1 EP and two further top 5 charting singles, British artist Charlotte Young is kicking off her 2021 with On The Loose. Since her debut, Charlotte has been nominated for a number of awards including UK Country Artist of the Year & UKCMSA Newcomer of the Year and has amassed over 20,000 streams on Spotify. The news of this release is made all the more exciting with the addition of fast-rising UK talent Georgia Nevada, who this month will release her own second single in addition to this duet.
On The Loose opens with a classic needle-in-groove sound and a slowed-down, lo-fi vocal before the beat kicks in. The song has already become a firm favourite and regularly-requested part of Young’s live streams, so it’s certain to do well as a fully-produced single. With the announcement of the collaboration with Georgia Nevada (who this month releases her own second single), the release becomes even more exciting. The song is a fun, up-tempo, honky-tonk inspired jive. It’s a unique tale told from the perspective not of the heartbroken but the heartbreaker herself. These women have voices that complement one another beautifully. The textured power of Young is perfectly balanced by Nevada’s smooth, soulful stylings to deliver the tale of sassy, heartbreaker girl-gang.
Young’s style is evolving by the minute – from Whiplash to Praying For Rain to On The Loose, she delivers a unique soundscape. She effortlessly blends traditional country and rock influences from The Eagles and Johnny Cash with modern, mainstream styles reminiscent of Carrie Underwood. This song is a departure from her signature karaoke-ready power ballad, and it shows just how talented a storyteller she really is.
