Alice Jemima - Liquorice

Originally hailing from Devon, UK, singer/songwriter and producer Alice Jemima has today unveiled her new single, "Liquorice", which also serves as the title track off her forthcoming EP, due out on June 17th via Radio 1 DJ and Bestival co-founder Rob da Bank's label, Sunday Best Recordings.

Inspired by the likes of The XX and Shura, Jemima describes the EP as being about "Relationships, terrible nights out and her early experiences of the record industry," and the EP title track as being, "a song about trying to please other people, and then drifting off into this imaginary world to try and please yourself. I wrote this at a time when I was putting a lot of pressure on myself. I think women especially feel like they should look a certain way or try to be something else, and I was definitely feeling it that day."

Listen to "Liquorice" below and stay tuned for a lot more new music Alice Jemima in the coming months as she is also currently working with producer Roy Kerr (London Grammar, Bloc Party, Foxes) on her debut album, due out later this year.
