New Music: Siobhán Winifred

Fans of melancholic indie-pop will most certainly fall in love with rising London-based alternative artist Siobhán Winifred.

New single ‘This House’ serves listeners with a raw and deeply moving piece of music that looks at broken relationships – and the consequent fallouts.

“‘This House’ was written at a time when I was at my most vulnerable. I had it all down in twenty minutes and the vocals on the final version are all from the first take, everything was so raw. The song was written two days after a house party that my ex, his new girlfriend and I were all at. The song is about all the conflicting emotions you have when you want someone to be happy but are struggling to watch them move on. I wanted to capture the intense feeling of claustrophobia I had that night. Everybody there knew the situation and it just reached a point where I had to leave. I included sounds of a house party on the track and the production kicks in on the line ‘so I think I better leave’ – it’s about reaching breaking point and desperately needing to escape.”

To date, Winifred has received critical praise from the likes of BBC Introducing, Radio 1 and 6 Music, while her debut single ‘Black Hole’ (released earlier in the summer) has already accumulated more than 115k streams on Spotify alone.
