Introducing: Fabienne

Born and raised in Bradford on a musical diet consisting of Kanye West, N.E.R.D and J’Dilla, 21-year-old Fabienne‘s strong Hip-Hop sensibility shines through in her debut AA single, ‘Smokescreen/Taxi’, to be released July 1st via Super Recordings. While the young singer’s vocal stylings are sure to draw comparisons to Amy Winehouse, her distinctly modern, sassy lyrics are more evocative of Kate Nash, and add a refreshing twist to the funky and soulful. ‘Taxi’ is an infectiously feel-good number, with a massive chorus that simply deserves to be a mainstream hit. ‘Smokescreen’ is more slowed down and introspective, yet no less catchy. Fred Cox‘s production brings the tune to 11, utilising a piano sample that would certainly make Kanye proud. With tracks this strong, it would be a crime for Fabienne not to be on everyone’s radar by at least the end of the year.
