“A remarkable post-disco jewel” – Clash
Electro-pop newcomer Vanity Fairy shares blissed-out synth treat Loverman, detailing her fresh approach to the genre ahead of next month’s Lust For Dust debut EP release.
Co-produced alongside collaborators Sammy Yamaha and Simon Byrt (Pixx, Babeheaven), Vanity Fairy is the new project from Daisy Capri – a wonky, weird and wonderful reimagining of late 70s disco dance-floor fillers with influences ranging from The Bee Gees and Prince to Ariel Pink and Michael Jackson.
Already attracting a groundswell of support throughout the online community (NME, Clash, The 405) and across the radio airwaves (BBC Radio 1) following the release of debut single He Can Be Your Lady, the rising talent’s blend of flickering, infectious post-disco joy shines through in her unique live show.
Having made the striking decision to dispense with a live band and perform her entire set karaoke, the solo artist explained: “For me, every time you play live as an artist, you’re kind of covering yourself anyway. Always chasing a version of that first moment of inspiration, or whatever, when you first come up with the idea for a song. I like the freedom of not having to play an instrument; it means I can really do the kind of moves I want to, and get down on my knees and so on if I’m feeling really emotional at a particular point in the set”.
Alongside a series of live dates over the next month, Vanity Fairy’s Loverman is released15th November and will be available on all digital platforms.
