The softest voice, the sharpest pen, she deserves her cake.
After spending the weekend listening to endless hours of Pip Millett, I do not know where to start. I first heard her song “Fancy” on my Spotify discover weekly, and instantly needed more. The chorus was looping in my head, an affirmation to the modern woman – she sings “I’m so fancy, I’m so sexy” and damn do I ever feel it when I sing along with her dancing around my bedroom in lingerie (thank you lockdown).
Over the past 3 days I have listened to her entire discography, and to anybody lonely as Spring begins to bloom or biking down whatever city you find yourself in today, listen to the stories this artist tells. Her concepts stand out, navigating the expectations of women, her own anxieties, raw love through the eyes of a poet. She is genius, and I applaud her message on every song.
Originally from Stockport, the 23 year old artist hasn’t stopped since her 2018 release “Make Me Cry” (now surpassing 11 million streams) immediately cut through all the BS, and the industry opened up for the marvel that is Pip Millett. Since, she has released 2 EP’s, Do Well released summer 2019, and most recently Lost In June in 2020 and is sitting pretty at 750,000 Spotify monthly listeners, which is impressive for not having released since her single “Stupid People” in August 2020.
In 2019, an article on DiscoverNü was published highlighting hidden SoundCloud gems under 5000 plays, Pip is featured with the song “Drunk & Alone” now with over 40,000 plays on the platform.
I could talk about this beautiful artist forever, but instead press play and hear why I am so obsessed.
PS. Listen to her cover of Otis Redding’s “Try a Little Tenderness”.
