Brighton singer songwriter Fifi Dewey introduces herself with the cosmic self-produced “Bent Star”.
There's no doubt Dewey is destined for stellar things, working on her forthcoming debut album with Speedy Wunderground's Dan Carey as well as already having toured with Sophie Hunger.
On her new release “Bent Star”, Dewey's angelic melodies self-echo over choral vocals that ground the disorientating rewound guitars, as 80s synths plough into rattles and whirs.
The track is inspired, Dewey says, by "our obsession with beauty and perfection. Even when we know someone or something is unobtainable or wrong for us, we put them on pedestals and try and force it to work."
"There is a word in Portuguese called ‘Saudade’,” Dewey says, “which means 'a vague and constant desire for something that does not and probably cannot exist, for something other than the present'. Saudade is 'not an active discontent or poignant sadness, but a dreaming wistfulness'. I find this word so important for me making music."
