Faye Webster - "But Not Kiss"

Photo by Michelle Mercado

We've been giant fans of Faye Webster's take on chilled out indie rock and folk for a while now, so we're always thrilled when she releases new music. Her latest, "But Not Kiss," fits right into her catalog of music, but it is also her most ambitious song to date. The new song starts off just as we'd expect a Faye Webster song to start off. It's simple, and beautiful, and mellow. And then the piano kicks in, and everything changes. "But Not Kiss" is all of those things, but somehow the piano gives the song this absolutely epic feel. This is the biggest sounding of Webster's songs to date, and it shows some interesting growth for the artist.

Faye Webster says of her new single:

I think it could be a really romantic song or a really anti-romantic song. It’s something I’ve looked for but struggled to find in other love songs, for them to describe this conflict or contradiction.

You can watch the video for "But Not Kiss" below. The single is available now via Secretly Canadian. For more on Faye Webster, check out the artist's website. Upcoming tour dates are below the video.
