Hussy’s ‘Playtime’ is straightforward dream pop with a clean, ringing tone out of London. Sophie Nicole Ellison “plays, records and layers all instrumentation herself as home-recorded collages before polishing the recordings into fully-produced versions in her home studio,” she says. Ellison describes this tune as emblematic of her “conflicting headspaces. Layers of intertwining guitars and silky vocals give way to cascading drums and bass, intensifying often self reflective and emotionally fraught lyrics.” This has an impressively polished tone for a home recording – clearly this songwriter is also a very talented producer. There’s something really charming about this song. It doesn’t really break a ton of new ground in the world of rock-oriented pop, but it feels like a full, completely genuine of Ellison’s character nonetheless. Check out ‘Playtime’ below!
