This Delaire article was written By Sarah Ebockayuk, GIGsoup Track of the Day Editor
Sparkly funk, refreshing pop and a quirky sound is what GIGsoup likes in a good ‘Track of the Day’, and that is exactly what emerging talent Delaire has given us with her new single ‘Don’t Move’ – released last week. The songstress recently performed the track as part of her sold out headline show at Servant Jazz Quarters and is due to follow that with a gig at the Paper Dress Indigo Sessions, Hackney on March 17th
After performing at the noteable Maida Vale Studios as part of BBC Radio’s, People’s History of Pop Delaire is now a ‘Featured Artist’ of BBC Introducing – which has churned out a major list of artists that have gone on to dominate the music scene in the UK.
GIGsoup spoke to Delaire about the single…
“Don’t Move” is your amazing new single. Following the success of ‘Belief’ is there much pressure on this single?
Honestly – I don’t feel any pressure I just feel excited to be releasing another track. I was incredibly happy with the response to belief and ‘don’t move’ is a totally different vibe so fingers crossed!
How would you describe your sound in 5 words?
Vocally haunting but musically bouncy
What is the song about and why did you choose it as your second single?
It’s actually about a guy I knew when I was 16 who I was totally infatuated with. He was in a band and was totally gorgeous and cool and would lead me on on nights out and then ignore me the weekend after, I soon learnt that actually he was a bit of a wanker. The song is about the connection I felt when we were together.
I chose it as my next single as I wanted to show diversity in my music. I am often compared to other artists and want to show that I carry my own style.
Being a new artist in the industry what has been your highlight to date?
Hmmmmmm.. I played a gig recently at The Finsbury and loads of my family and friends came which is always so nice. I miss out on quite a lot of social stuff as my working hours are so all over the place so it’s always nice to see them. I was pretty happy when BBC introducing started showing support, I think they are a great platform for artists.
Do you have any plans to release an album this year?
I would love to – but right now I am just focusing in writing and rehearsing and seeing what comes my way.
Any exciting plans musically in 2016? Working with any notable producers/artists?
I have recently started writing with my keyboard player he is in a great band called ‘Croox’ and does all his own production, so we are seeing what magic we can make together.
What was the first ever CD you bought?
Most likely the Spice Girls! Girl Power 🙂
