London Alt-Pop Artist FAYYE Unveils New Single ‘Places’

A native of London but with a much more classic background, FAYYE has studied piano for years, since she was four, growing up as a classical concert pianist with a passion from her Greek-Irish musical background.

The clean and poetic lyricism is the basis for FAYYE stories about the human experience. In her songs, she writes about emotions, self-confidence, taking chances, and letting go.

The atmospheric backdrops created by this artist have caught the attention of critics at Clash, BBC, and audiences at Ronnie Scott’s, from when FAYYE released her first EP, She, in 2020.

The bittersweet and sensuous melodies from her debut EP have now been followed by FAYYE’s new song titled “Places”.

It was written and produced in collaboration with Ian Barter, and seems to be the perfect anthem to conclude this very hot summer. FAYYE’s inspiration for these nostalgic melodies comes from Thelma and Louise, the cult film produced in the 90s.

With her new single, FAYYE tells the story of two people driving away from their hometown, leaving it in the rearview as they venture towards something new. “Places” is the second single to be published as part of FAYYE’s upcoming EP, Rise, following “Blind Faith” released in May 2022.

Her Rise EP appears to be a fresh start for the British singer, who claims that: “these tracks reflect and celebrate the sense of self-worth and confidence I re-discovered in my late twenties. I hope they can provide my listeners with an uplifting sense of joy, confidence, and freedom”.
