When thinking of music to soundtrack your life, it’s important to maintain variety. One needs a flow of music that has peaks and dips and matches the difference of mood experienced within a space of time. It must hold the ability to be diversely relatable, like a mood ring that serenades you and sonically matches the tone of one’s life.

With her orchestrated and complex music, Fleurie (Lauren Strahm) creates music that could easily contribute to your individual soundtrack, or even compose the entire score. Her music is vocally driven pop with a layer of electronic undertones that help drive the songs into a much deeper and reverberating direction. It creates a contemplative atmosphere; one that gains momentum and eventually bursts (“Still Your Girl”) or creates a gorgeously refined and soothing tone (“Chasing All the Stars”).

The two EPs the young artist has out (2013’s Fear and Fable and this year’s Arrows) and their respected sonic landscapes greatly speak to the diversity of the artist. Fear and Fable showcases a much more refined palette, utilizing an almost acoustic arrangement that shows off Strahm’s voice in much more bright way. A way that focuses on Strahm’s voice as the storyteller. Arrows is a different but still relatable environment for Fleurie’s music. It adds a layer of welcomed complexity to her music with the introduction and heavier reliance on electronica. Strahm’s voice also becomes an instrument (reminiscent of Immogen Heap) within her latest EP, winding through the symphonic and electric beats all while adding moments of clarity when it lands on a softer moment within the songs.

Oh, and she also did an intensely beautiful cover of the Postal Service’s “Such Great Heights” with her sister.
