Northern musician Martha Hill has released the first single 'Grilled Cheese' taken from her upcoming EP 'Summer Up North', which has been recorded during lockdown via Zoom.
'Grilled Cheese' shows off Martha's uniqueness and is accompanied by a building drum beat in this summer banger. It's quirky and different and as the music gets heavier so does her vocal.
"It’s been weird being in the studio and in my living room at the same time. Grilled Cheese is a dissection of a relationship. Daft arguments about about food prep, bouncing off each other negatively, jealousy, but in the end still believing things are going to get better."
Martha Hill left her rural Scottish home aged 17 to busk her way around Europe, before settling down in Newcastle and throwing herself into the UK music scene. She writes left-field 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, thriving in reinvention and fusion.
After being tipped as one of BBC Introducing’s 'ones to watch', followed by a feature on Jools Holland, Martha Hill is one of the most exciting upcoming artists of 2020. Funded by the coveted PRS Women Make Music Fund, and also a Rebalance finalist, she released her debut EP 'Be Still' in October 2019 which received support from the likes of BBC 6 music, BBC Introducing, Amazing Radio and Spotify Playlists.
It’s amazing what you can achieve when you carve your own path in life, and Martha Hill’s journey is only just beginning.
