Say hello to our next Artist Of The Week, The People Versus! Haunting folk fairytales powered by sheer pop euphoria. Borrowing from a variety of genres and traditions, their combined voices and instrumental lines swoop, circle, and support the beguiling voice and personality of the lead singer Alice.
Listen to their latest single “Witch” here:
Each song is taut with feeling and longing, inspired by Greek myth and tales from Shakespeare. The resulting sound is “Dreamy… it just pulls you in.” says BBC introducing. We totally agree! Dreamy, catchy and intriguing. Their track “Witch” really makes you want to dance and sing a long. We can honestly say that this is an ear-worm that we can imagine being played on BBC 2 and 6 Music. Alice’s vocals are reminiscent of that of Norwegian Pop artist Aurora, with more nostalgic sensibilities.
Watch the live version of “Witch” here:
Formed in late 2019, they filled tents at Greenbelt and Lakefest and completed runs of small venues and festivals across the UK to enthusiastic audiences. The band have since secured bookings for 2021 including Cambridge Folk Festival, How The Light Gets In and rescheduled Campfire Show with The Nest Collective. So keep your eyes open for this exciting band!
