5 months too late I am on throwing compliments on Sunday Girl, but better late than never, eh? Heard her music 2 months ago but with all the new music and remixes coming in, I forgot to post about her and while I was working on the blog my iTunes was on random and played her cover of Laura Branigan’s Self Control and I just had to know who this voice behind the cover was. And then came Sunday Girl!
UK has always have a lush breed of artists from Lily Allen to Imogen Heap and just recently, our most loved Ellie Goulding. Sunday Girl just joined this breed. The twenty-one year-old British singer, whose real name is Jade Williams, was coined Sunday Girl courtesy of forgetful customers of the pet shop she worked in every Sunday as a 14 year-old.
Although constantly compared to the likes of Neon Hitch, Sky Ferreira and Florrie, her sound has a distinct quality. And despite the 1000 plus plays she has on her Myspace account, her amazing debut single Four Floors had been remix by big time names like Diplo and Russ Chimes, one of which you can preview below. She is currently signed to Island/Geffen Records in the U.K. last year and and now working on her debut album together with Jim Elliott (Kylie, Ladyhawke). Her upcoming record, which she promises to be a mix of alt-pop electronica is launched in her Self Control cover of the Laura Branigan hit. Perhaps a little generic but Sunday Girl’s angsty twist and mesmerizing take on her music (add to it the electronic soundscape) educes double takes from music lovers.
