Easing our way into a new week is this soulful ode from London-based singer-songwriter FAYYE. Having grown up in a family of pianists, she learnt to play the piano from a young age. Over time, drawing upon the Greek and Irish folk music of her childhood along with the '90s and pop of her teenage years, she honed her music at open mic nights across the city. She is the title track of her debut EP released last Friday (5 June) and is a hauntingly melancholic, yet uplifting number. There’s a touch of London Grammar’s dreamy pop tones about it but also a soft jazzier side too - perfect for mellow playlists. Clash magazine are fans having supported her first single and this Wednesday she will be performing a live streamed gig for Sofa Session. Currently working on her next project with Ian Barter (Amy Winehouse, Paloma Faith, Izzy Bizu), FAYYE is an emerging new talent to keep close tabs on for the future.
