NEW ARTIST: POPPY BASKCOMB | TEARDROP
23-year-old London-based singer Poppy Baskcomb is a promising talent, ready to take over the crown of the electro-pop queen. An experienced songwriter and featured vocalist, who collaborated with Sonny Fodera and Mel C, releases her debut single "Teardrop," a catchy, fun, and powerful track that will become a hit. The track features '80s pop and EDM sound vibes. Poppy Baskcomb shared on social media, “It's been five years leading up to this moment, and I'm so happy to share this project with you. And who better to film this lil vid with than the two legends who helped me make it. Big love to my friends and family. Big love to my team.” Poppy describes the musical influences behind the single as a combination of Stevie Nicks, Miley Cyrus, and Robyn. Lyrically, ‘Teardrop’ celebrates love. ‘We just had fun, combining all of our experiences from nights out and club romances,’ shares Poppy, and she doesn’t hide that she feels great about her track. ‘It’s the first song where I felt like there was a lot of me in it. And that’s why I’m so gassed to have it as my first single, and I hope everyone else is too.’ Poppy also released a lyric video to her newest single, which accurately represents her fun, colourful aesthetics and love for disco. Her nostalgic sound with a modern touch, all wrapped by a robust and unapologetic vocal, should make both Blondie and Charlie XCX proud.
