Singer-songwriter, Gabrielle Aplin has come a long way from posting acoustic her cover songs to Youtube.
That is precisely how Aplin amassed her following, though – by showcasing her vocal chops and acoustic guitar skills through dynamic re-imaginings of songs by the likes of MGMT, Mumford and Sons, Bob Dylan, Adele, and Ed Sheeran. These covers would lead to Aplin's being signed by Parlophone records in February of 2012. It did not take her long to break into the mainstream. By December of 2012, Aplin landed herself a number one hit on the U.K. Singles Chart for her cover of Frankie Goes to Hollywood's "The Power of Love."
Aplin is back with another offering for the Singles Chart, this time in the form of an original song, "Nothing Really Matters." The new song sees Aplin setting down her acoustic guitar and folk sensibilities in exchange for a more pop-oriented, synth-driven love song. "Nothing really matters, no, nothing really matters but you," Aplin playfully sings over a huge, stadium-ready chorus.
The song is as bouncy and fun as it is ambient and sincere. Sweeping synths and quirky samples of Aplin's vocalizing provide the backdrop to an exciting and giddy love song. "Nothing Really Matters" is a meticulously produced and expertly executed track that deserves a spot on the pop charts – don't be surprised if you hear it dominate the airwaves in the months to come.
