Ettie sings with delicious vocals on ‘Pepsi’

Singer-songwriter Ettie is back with more fantastic music on ‘Pepsi‘.

Ettie is an up and coming singer-songwriter from London, who drinks a lot of wine and has a lot of feelings. She infuses classic pop-punk melodies with personal, storytelling narratives. Her unique sound coupled with her background in English Literature allows for an immersive sonic experience, using word play and allusion to bring her songs to life.

You hate the way they talk their way up and aren’t sure if they are right for you, you go with it however. After a while, reality strikes and you start to regret what is going on. The temptation starts to fade however and things need to move quickly otherwise you will go home.

Ettie’s influences are Paramore, Avril Lavigne, Pale Waves, 80s synth pop, Kim Wilde, Patti Smith, L Devine. She has played at many London venues, supporting acts like Calvin Rodgers. This new song was self-written and produced by Charles Westropp in his studio. The song is highly influenced by 80s synth-pop to bring a classic delivery to a classic story.

Pepsi‘ is Ettie’s pop fantasy. She turns towards commercial from her classic pop-punk roots to establish herself as a true alt-pop artist. The song is about not having a dazzling connection with someone, but deciding to go with it anyway; like when you ask for a Coke in a restaurant and they ask if pepsi is okay? It’s not exactly what you ordered but it’s a start.

This is a sweet song with such interesting lyrics from Ettie on her new song ‘Pepsi‘. The way she expresses herself is so fantastic and this is a true tale of nights out after a few drinks. I love her music and she is like no other artist. This is a good thing.

A&R Factory Present: Yes You Are

As an introduction, Kianna was formerly in the band Tilly and the Wall, touring alongside acts such as Jenny Lewis, She and Him, Bright Eyes, Rilo Kiley, Of Montreal, CSS and many more, appearing in major festivals such as Coachella, Summersonic in Japan, Iceland Airwaves and UK’s Reading and Leeds. Tilly and The Wall gained mainstream exposure when we performed on Late Night with David Letterman and landed an appearance on Sesame Street. Tilly also had songs in many successful commercials for companies such as Jaguar, Target, Bacardi, Vicks, and T-Mobile for their 2014 Super Bowl ad; as well as many films and TV shows such as Drew Berrymore’s directorial debut Whip It, and the CBS hit series The Good Wife.

Tilly eventually went on hiatus around 2013 and it was soon after that when Kianna met Jared White, the co-writer in Yes You Are, and together they set out to make fresh, edgy new pop music that would ride the line between what makes underground music so great and what makes pop music so attractive.

The song HGX was featured in the movie Bad Moms, as well as the FX series Tyrant and a recent Pepsi commercial. We are currently working on our debut album with Grammy Award winning producer/engineer Greg Collins, best known for his work with Gwen Stefani, No Doubt, Eels and KISS.
