It’s no surprise that on first listen you’ll be reminiscing on Bristol’s original trip hop cure Portishead, when you get a fix of this 23-year-old singer/songwriter on her debut single ‘Pain Killer’.
Singer/songwriter, AVA LILY also hails from the West Country, and carries some of that Bristol magic in her soul ridden raspy vocals that distort over renewed trip-hop beats. ‘Painkiller’ sets off a strong start for the Naughty Boy discovery who’s signed to his Naughty Records label venture, and arrives as a timely cure for those summer blues.
About ‘Painkiller’ track, Ava says, “the whole song is very self-destructive and basically me thinking I’m hurting loads of people but in reality I’m just hurting myself.. It’s all just numbin.”
If music is the medicine for the heart, you don’t need a prescription for this ‘painkiller’ – just listen below;
