Matilda Mann - Happy Anniversary, Stranger
What a genuinely lovely song. Even though the style points firmly towards vocalists like Laura Marling or Suzanne Vega, the subject matter is something that I think we've all been through at some point in our younger years. It's about having one of those all-encompassing crushes on someone you see every day, on a bus in this case, but never have the guts to go up to and chat to, even to share a simple "hello". I love the whole tone of this, and it makes me super excited to see how Mann matures as an artist in the future.
