New Music: Lizzie Esau

Born in London and raised up the North, Lizzie Esau has always been surrounded by creativity thanks her artist mother and musician father.

Inspired by the likes of Beabadoobee, London Grammar, Imogen Heap, Sam Fender and Wolf Alice, Esau creates impactful and confident indie-rock sounds that could well be described as some of the strongest to emerge from the UK right now.

“‘The Enemy’ is about someone who doesn’t fit in or work well in school and so is pushed a future they don’t want or feel they have control. It explores how this leads to rebellion and frustration often soothed by overconsumption. Overall I wanted this song to portray the bitter truth of life I have seen around me but also end with a sense of hope and going against what is expected.”

Esau was recently picked BBC Introducing Tip for 2022, and will be playing BBC Radio 1’s Big Weekend in May 2022, as well as more festivals across the UK.
