Katie Buchan, better known as Best Girl Athlete, returns with new single ‘Seven Seconds’, taken from her album, Carve Every Word’, which was released in March this year.
The Aberdeen born folk/pop singer demonstrates her ability to write melodic, peaceful music, which is highlighted throughout the single.
It is very delicate; with the gentle vocals from Buchan alongside subtle fiddle and acoustic guitar, achieving a soft, folky sound.
This may be a surprising choice of track to release as a single when listening to the album as a whole, it is not as lively or energetic as some tracks on there, however as a single, it portrays Buchan’s strength in structured and deep songwriting both through the lyrics and the music.
‘Seven Seconds’ successfully shows Best Girl Athlete’s talents and will undoubtedly encourage many to experience her album in its entirety.
