logo_il4SINGLE OF THE WEEK 2: BIRD – THE DARE: Janie Price – aka Bird – is a half-English, half-Irish, London-based singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. She has just finished recording her new album Figments of Our Imagination, due to be released this summer, and now drops The Dare as its first taster. The result is suitably intriguing. Mixing the brooding, ethereal and atmospheric with moments of headrush pop, this combines elements of both Bjork and Rickie Lee Jones and leaves you thirsting for more. Vocally, Price has an appealing mix of the sultry and the fragile (the latter element being particularly evident early on, as the track warms up), while instrumentally there’s a sharp mix of acoustic pop and gutsy folk-rock mixed with synth pop. It’s a winning mix and one that’s brave enough to sound original. On the evidence so far, Figments of Our Imagination should be well worth checking out.
