TUNE Martha Hill - Landslide
Martha Hill has announced the release of her new single 'Landslide'.
The track is being released following the buzzy breakthrough success of 'Grilled Cheese', which was added to playlists at BBC Radio 1, BBC Radio 6 Music, Radio X and more.
'Landslide' showcases a new edge to Martha's sound with the introduction of infectious electronic production that enhances her glossy, beat-driven indie.
In keeping with her open and honest lyrics, the track is about not feeling right: "When you’re down, it’s hard to imagine the up, and when you’re up, there’s no such thing as down”.
When I’m feeling better I can’t understand why it won’t last forever. Caught up in a landslide standing in the rain like there’s no other weather.
The single is the latest from Martha's new EP Summer Up North, which is being released on 23rd October 2020.
Martha writes observational alt-pop that is both hard-hitting and catchy as hell. An energy of husky vocals and melodic hooks, her introspective storytelling delivers socially conscious themes over a backdrop of guitars, cellos and synths, revelling in reinvention and fusion.
Hill grew up on a remote peninsular in Scotland but left when she was just 17 to travel around Western Europe as a street musician, living in squats and wild camping. A talented multi-instrumentalist and vocalist (guitar, trombone, percussion, vocals), she finally settled in the North East and began to pen a series of pop songs that would transcend the streets, drawing on the influence of left-field artists such as Little Dragon and Sylvan Esso.
Having sold out a number of shows around the North East, and supported acts such as Maximo Park, Mahalia and Let’s Eat Grandma, Martha will be playing a string of UK shows in April 2021.
