From small-town folk goddess to Sydney-based sultry qween, Vera Blue is the rising multi-instrumentalist sneaking her way into everyone’s playlist – and we’re not mad about it.
Today, the 22-year-old will sneak even further into your personal rotation as she shares her debut EP Fingertips. A swirling cocktail of lush electronica and fierce songwriting.
“I’ve always wanted to create something that’s a blend of folk and cool, heavy, thick sounds,” says Vera. “This is the music I have been wanting to make and I feel like I’m unleashing.”
Recorded between The Grove Studios in Sydney and Josh Telford’s home studio in Terrigal, with prolific singer/singwriter Gossling and powerhouse producers Andy and Thom Mak, the Fingertips EP is the product of four months spent writing and experimenting with backing vocalists, piano and electronic production.
The result is an honestly raw and fiery body of work with the purity of folk music and the punch of a bassline.
Having just wrapped-up a national tour with Matt Corby, completely selling-out a string of headline shows this month and securing a sought-after support slot with Broods in July, 2016 might just be the year for Vera Blue.
Her debut EP Fingertips is out today.
