Artist Watch: Gotta Have Faith

Tuesday, June 16, 2009

Who is Paloma Faith? A chick with a kick-ass name that's what. Gotta hand it to the Brits, they are surely churning out the most vibrant music these days and giving us Americans a run for our money...there must be something in the water. Whatever the reason, Paloma Faith and her band of funksters are an interesting bunch. The sound of Paloma is kind of that grungy back-alley soul, the kind that you wipe your hands in and don't mind that they are dirty. It's fun, harmless, and you feel like a rebel. It's quite engaging to say the least. Add in a little fashion savvy, that seems ripped out of Carrie Bradshaw's closet, and Paloma becomes one of the luxe artists to latch onto in '09. Paloma's debut album, Do You Want The Truth, Or Something Beautiful, will be dropping in stores, September 21st of this year. From the gurgling hype surrounding Paloma, it sounds like Paloma is well on her way to some success. Though I can hear the Amy Winehouse comparisons flying out of yapping traps everywhere, let's just forget Winehouse for the moment and just enjoy Paloma's gravely vocals and pixie meets wild child nature. In the meantime, take a stab at the video for single, "Stone Cold Sober", which was officially released yesterday on iTunes. I truly like the sound and look of's seedy Soul with a little dusty Hollywood sprinkled over it. Nice.
