Meet your new favourite artist. Alice Jemima.
Inspired by the likes of The xx and Shura (they share the same drummer live) Jemima describes her debut Liquorice EP as being about “Relationships, terrible nights out and her early experiences of the record industry.”
‘Liquorice is a song about trying to please other people, and then drifting off into this imaginary world to try and please yourself. I wrote this at a time when I was putting a lot of pressure on myself. I think women especially feel like they should look a certain way or try to be something else, and I was definitely feeling it that day. The video is a fantastic testament to the song, I instantly fell in love with 2Doors (the directors) vision – it’s vibrant and colourful, slightly weird and quirky and most importantly it’s fun and it doesn’t take itself too seriously – which is something I’m a firm believer of :)’
‘Liquorice’ has been taken from her debut EP of the same name released on 17 June via Sunday Best.
