Listen: Fabienne Unveils New Track, ‘City Of Shadows’

Bradford-raised, London-based talent releases her new EP through Super Recordings this month.

The tide is turning. Gloomy skies are visible through barely-opened curtains at least ten minutes earlier than usual, and the sun sets before an onset of perishing winds a little later than it did this time last month. London newcomer Fabienne acknowledged as much in her glowing, red-in-the-face ‘Sunstroke’, taken from new EP ‘City of Shadows’, out 24th March through Super Recordings.

Said EP’s lead, title-track is similarly resolute in heading for blue skies and dripping Soleros. Saying that, it’s a song that touches in with isolation - ‘It’s a long, long ride when you’re riding alone’ - but it eventually finds solace in the bright lights and endless buzz of a big city. ‘I wanna go back where they know my name’ she professes atop a soul-backed chorus more worthy of afternoon festival slots than anything else we’ve heard so far this year.

The Bradford-raised, London-based songwriter is a serious name to watch if this track’s anything to go by. DIY has the first play. Listen below.
