Claudia Kane - The Silence

Introducing 23-year-old singer/songwriter Claudia Kane, who is the enchanting new trip-pop priestess bringing together the classic trip-hop of Morcheeba with a taste of Siouxsie Sioux and Suzanne Vega. Her vivid brand of gothic electronica - both intensely personal and distantly cool - pinned down with a steely pop edge.

Born in London to a seamstress and a criminologist, Claudia led a rather destructive life - clearly imprinted on an artist that now prefers to sing about truth and grit. Placing this into swirls of jagged, insouciant beats cut into wide and ghostly soundscapes, Claudia's visceral vocals that put her in the excitingly rarified categories of Lana Del Ray, Bat For Lashes and Massive Attack. 

Already making waves on the blogosphere by picking up tastemaker press from the likes of Noisey, Clash and Hunger, "The Silence" confirms Claudia's truly compelling position in the emerging landscape. The first track from her forthcoming second EP, "The Silence" showcases exactly that delicate balance of pure, true trip-hop and Vega’s hard-hitting mantra. It's a beguiling and unique artistry that reasserts a true talent coming from an ever-more experimental and exciting scene at the moment.

Claudia says: "None of my songs are about love, because I’ve never been in love."

Listen to "The Silence" below.

Premiere via The Line of Best Fit.
