Hero Fisher - "I Let Love"

Out of the two of us, Jeff is definitely the pop fan. A lot of the pop music he sings the praises of I just ignore, knowing it's not for me. There are a few exceptions, but it's a mostly ironclad rule for me. This is why I'm surprised by how much I like this new song from Hero Fisher. "I Let Love" lands in the alternative pop that sometimes squeaks into the mainstream these days. It's well produced and mostly pretty. What pulls me in is the fact that it's mostly pretty. Unlike most pop out there today, "I Let Love" has a swagger to it, with a slight sense of menace just under the surface. Hidden in the pretty pop is a general feeling that something is wrong, and a darkness usually missing in the genre. Plus, it has an interesting story from a songwriting aspect. The song follows different characters throughout their day, like a musical version of David Linklater's Slacker.

You can watch the video for "I Let Love" below. Hero Fisher's new album, Glue Moon, will be out at some point. (I can't seem to find any release date info...) For more information on Hero Fisher, check out her website.
