This week’s hottest brand new act...
KEY TRACK: Tennis Fan
LABEL: Cascine/Dot Dash
MANAGEMENT: ie Music
WHO: Banoff ee is the musical alias of Melbourne artist Martha Brown, who used to play in experimental pop outfit Otouto.
WHAT: Experimental pop doesn’t quite cover it anymore when it comes to describing Banoffee’s sound, which is pitched in a sweet spot directly between radio playlists and the neon lights of clubland.
WHERE: Banoffee has moved from Melbourne to Los Angeles, where she’s embracing sunshine and pop gloss. She toured with Taylor Swift as part of Charli XCX’s band and has worked with Sophie, Cupcakke and more.
WHAT’S GOING ON, THEN?
Banoffee has just released Tennis Fan, which features Empress Of and includes samples of on-court sounds, which are funny, and a brilliant melody, which will lodge in the brain of any sentient being.
Debut album Look At Us Now Dad is coming in February. It charts a rough period for Banoffee, while uncovering a vibrant new talent.
I’M INTO IT...
Us too. Banoffee’s music is healing, uplifting and wicked fun.
