Cat Power, The xx
Vocal harmonies that come to the heart
" Her voice guides us over fields we wouldn’t otherwise dare cross. "
It’s not easy giving an honest review when you’re a band’s groupie. OK, I’m just joking – I’m not Birthh’s groupie, but do think that had I had a band as a teenager, I would’ve definitely wanted to sound like her. Her voice hits you like something that you jealously keep to yourself, like the first time I heard Cat Power acoustic or The xx. And Alice Bisi, her real name, made it all at just 19 years of age. She seems so lost in the dark and tortured, but her voice guides us over fields we wouldn’t otherwise dare cross. Her first record Born in the Woods echoes some really big artists and a really amazing debut.
Birthh is a singer that not only European, but also global stages need for sure. I’m sure she will find you soon: her gigs are pretty much everywhere, and the two where she supported violin genius Andrew Bird in Italy impressed both the public and critics.
