Want chic and sophisticated 60s pop with a venomous touch? Whinnie Williams is the bad girl for the job.
At first listen, this gorgeous chanteuse appears to be drawing inspiration from Lily Allen but ‘You Don’t Love Me’ is so much richer than that.
There is a real sense of old time 60s French pop chic happening here with orchestral touches and a kind of classiness you would find on a Dusty Springfield record.
All those vintage elements and Whinnie’s soft sweet vocals are countered by her biting lyrics, which is what makes this record so surprisingly good.
Whinnie opens the song with this line and immediately has us on board: “Somebody take my phone away ’cause I’m about to ruin my life…”
Honey, we’ve all been there.

The song is taken from Whinnie’s debut EP Bad Girl, which drops on 6 October. The project was written with producer Future Cut, who has worked with Olly Murs, Lily Allen and Dizzee Rascal.
Boy, her resumé doesn’t just say she’s a bad girl. It also brags that Whinnie has written for the likes of Madonna and Nicola Roberts, and toured with Ellie Goulding and La Roux. Plus, she’s featured on a track on Professor Green’s upcoming album.
Something tells us this girl is going to be huge.
