One of the country’s most beloved and elusive young R&B stars, Purple Ferdinand, follows on from her critically-acclaimed EP Rain or Shine last year – making THE FADER’s ‘Best R&B EPs of the Year‘ – with her gorgeous new release “Left To Fight”.
Continuing a breathtakingly natural ability to craft moving and substantial songs from seemingly thin air, this latest single marks her return from her writing and living in Bermuda and proves the age old saying that sometimes “less is more”. Driven by a solemn piano melody and carried on to the end by a violin solo, Purple Ferdinand explores her most vulnerable place and her soft vocals brings that alive in the song.
Speaking on the track, Purple states: “’Left to Fight’ was written a little while back, yet the sentiment remains the same today; it's an insight into my views on my experience in the music world at the time, about social standards and simply the pressures we can feel – leaving us with this pure need for honestly and justice. You feeling left to fight for what you believe.”
