Taken from her forthcoming ‘The Joys of Forgetting’ album, out on August 7th via Northern Spy Records is ‘Welcome’, the new single from Brooklyn singer-songwriter Allegra Kreiger.

If the track, Krieger explains: “Welcome is about opening your life up to someone and letting defenses down. Learning to live with & love them through good & bad.” 

Rustic and beautiful, Welcome has this air of tumbling indie folk about it, but it’s when only when the string section blossoms, weaving in and out of the guitar and melody that it really unfurls into something that demands your attention. Over the top of it Krieger’s warm alto encapsulates and enthrals.

Beautiful, affecting pop music. Check it out, here
