Lizzie Hill put all her emotions on the line in ‘Dirty Laundry’

If you never got over t.A.T.u.’s hit single, All the Things She Said, Lizzie Hill’s latest single, Dirty Laundry, which uses oscillating synth lines and delicately evocative vocals in the same vein, has all the makings of your new favourite perennial pop earworm.

Blending the etherealism of dream pop with the hooks of a synthpop anthem, Dirty Laundry lays it all out on the line in the intimately electrifying production, which proves that the Cornwall-residing singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist’s talents belie her years.

As the lyrics relay a relatable vignette of how friendships can turn sour in a sequence of imbittering progressions, Lizzie Hill projects swathes of morose emotion in her perfectly pitched vocal lines while ensuring Dirty Laundry remains a soulfully euphonic anthem of liberation from the toxic ties that bind you to people determined to diminish your self-worth.

It’s a stunningly creative and affectingly cathartic release through and through and a clear sign that the singer-songwriter has exactly what it takes to dominate the pop domain in 2024.

Dirty Laundry will be officially released on March 1st; stream the single on all major platforms via this link.

The Cornish brother duo, Roguey Roads, served a fresh slice of Americana indie pop with Westwood Sands

Roguey Roads carved a fresh slice of Americana indie pop for their latest single, Westwood Sands, which fuses country vox with an angular melodicism that will make any indie fan nostalgic for the 90s and 00s.

Following their debut album, Something to Prove, in 2021, Westwood Sands is a testament to how honed the Cornish indie pop duo’s sound has become. The songwriting, in particular, has been elevated to the nth degree.

After the winding bluesy guitars in the intro, momentum progressively builds in the immersive vignette of a wanderlust-driven protagonist who embarks on a journey of the soul and finds it filled by another. Hollywood directors would be hard-pressed to achieve the same panoramic picture in their feature films as Roguey Roads did in Westwood Sands.

It’s a heart-rendering indie pop anthem which goes a long way in proving why the brother duo can’t seem to create much distance between the ‘loveable’ adjective that is always affixed to them.

Westwood Sands is now available to stream on Spotify.

As she looks profoundly into the shining eyes of that kind soul who sends her beating heart into unforeseen levels of excitement, Megan Forrest feels that when they are close and holding hands, there is no other place she wants to be on ‘Flame‘.

Megan Forrest is a 22-year-old Cornwall, UK-based indie-pop singer-songwriter who was in the performing arts world and was known as a member of the local band, Montarra.

In 2018, Megan went to BIMM university in Bristol where she studied music further and, before the pandemic, performed some acoustic gigs in Bristol.” ~ Megan Forrest

Showing us her marvellous promise as a UK pop artist to truly welcome with a wave, Megan Forrest sings with so much elegance and lead us into this love story about that mysterious soul who makes her do things she normally wouldn’t do with anyone else in the world. This is a quality musician who flourishes here, with her gorgeously innocent vocals that might have you shaking with joy.

Flame‘ from Cornwall, UK-based indie-pop singer-songwriter and model Megan Forrest, is an I-just-want-to-know-you message to that special soul who lacks conversation but makes up for it with that cheeky energy that has her desiring their lips to be interlocked all night. Sung with dynamic energy that will have you turning the fan on, this is a sizzling single that is all about wishing that you could be together no matter what the differences.

Millie releases her powerful and funky EP Outliers

Millie has dropped her latest six-track collection ‘Outliers’ intertwining the sound of Pop but adding in a little jazz, every piece is filled with high energy and groovy melodies.

Always using the guitar to create those funky instrumentals as the guitar begins it’s electric shreds and the drum beats adding in that infectious energy that Millie portrays through all of her music, giving it a real uplifting feeling as you listen.

Millie’s vocal ranges tend to have that more modulated and tending to have that brittle texture to them the higher she goes with her voice, adding a bit of rough edge as she sings at a low-pitch volume. Always stretching out her voice to collide with the melody as that begins to pick up volume and suspense. The rhythm and the vocals go hand in hand and they flow so well together.

Some pieces on the anthology are live pieces, which is interesting to listen to the different atmosphere and the way the voice sounds. If Millie didn’t prove how fantastic her music was before then the mesmerising pieces of stripped-back live music is on a different level. Sometimes with live music it can be a hit or miss, but Millie owned it.  Hearing her voice as it is in all its glory was dreamy, hearing the roar emotion pouring through each word, the powerful instrumentation that collides alongside in such an incredible way.

Listen to Millie’s EP Outliers by heading on over to Spotify now.
