Hot from her appearance at this years Great Escape in Brighton the South London vocalist, songwriter and producer MICHELLE O FAITH has been punting her acoustic version of the second single “Lemonade” [full electric video shared below] from her EP “Birthday Blues.” The new video was filmed by Liam Robos-Murray with guitar-work by Michael Watts.
Her songs are often dark-tinged and seem obsessed with distinctly spaced-out guys, solitary souls, love, hate, sex, and all the in-betweens.
Her cinematic “Birthday Blues” has a huge voice, exciting percussion and a complex and elegant sound structure. Florence and The Machine and Lana Del Rey are clear influences.
Michelle is a classically educated singer [Blackheath Conservatoire of the Arts] and trained pianist too… and the topics of her songs tend to connect with citified triflings in a way that’s not often heard. Touchy without being aggressive.
Imagine the cocky fey of Lily Allen combined with Michaela Coel’s fanciful poetic cheekiness to get an idea.
