I couldn’t bear to watch this first time round but it’s actually very cool. All for the sake of the new single from We Are Shining X Eliza Doolittle.
Eliza Doolittle hasn’t really changed her direction since her debut back in 2010. Personally I think that’s a good thing – she’s got a very distinctive pop sound that doesn’t seem to get old. There’s nothing new or edgy with this, but it’s hard to hate it.
One more burst of Christmas music- check out this re-working of Wham’s ‘Last Christmas’ by Eliza Doolittle. Cute. There’s more Xmas covers by Eliza here.
Eliza’s back! A very different sound to what she had with her first album but then that’s always a good thing. Really looking forward to hearing more!
I love it when you get home from a really bad day at work, open your emails and get introduced to something that just lifts you up in three minutes… Aaron Wright is some colourful and charming pop. Soon to be supporting The Charlatans and Eliza Doolittle on tour (not at the same time, obviously). Check out here.
So my last post was all about Grime music and now it’s all about candy pop… Hmm. Two future pop superstars-in-the-making played the tiny Dingwalls last night. This is the same venue where I saw Mika and Robyn just before they both went on to take over the world, so maybe it has something in the air for these aspiring singers. Eliza Doolittle was really good, and her harmless tracks were pretty fun to listen to. She also did a cover of a Justin Bieber track which I enjoyed far more than I should have…
Alex Gardner, who headlined the night, was also pretty amazing. This kid is only a teenager, and I mentioned him on here months ago. His sound is pretty unique, and you forget sometimes just how young he is from the way he performs. We were a bit embarassed being surrounded by 15 and 16 year old girls screaming for his attention. One girl pushed me away to grab my spot and said ‘Do you love Alex Gardner? I LOVE Alex Gardner. I just wanna shag him and listen to his music at the same time’. Kids today eh?
