While we love the glossy, polished tune-age of superstars like Ariana Grande and Taylor Swift, we also love a bit of scuzzy, DIY pop to remind us we can be cool too.
The gloriously pink-haired FEMME has been lurking in the outer reaches of the industry for a while now, releasing a handful of catchy ditties like ‘Fever Boy’ and ‘Heartbeat’ and supporting US band Grouplove on their recent tour, but now she’s ready for a full on chart assault with new single ‘High’. Built around a cool, minimal beat and chopped up vocals, it’s a bit of a grower at first but after a few listens it is guaranteed to stay lodged in the brain. Oh, and did we mention she writes and produces all her own stuff? Between her mad skillz in the studio and her incredible wardrobe in the accompanying video, we reckon we may have a new girl crush on our hands.
Not only that, but our fave new popstar Charli XCX has even given her the seal of approval, saying;
“Right now, an artist that I think is going to blow up, and is super cool, is FEMME. Her lyrics are clever, the production is clever…I really like her, you should check her out!”.
SOLD. ‘High’ is out right now so why not give it a spin and see what you think!
