Fiona Bevan: Talk to Strangers

Fiona Bevan’s debut album, Talk to Strangers, more than lives up to the promise of its first single. The British singer-songwriter’s quirky soul-pop style falls somewhere between Sheila Nicholls, Joanna Newsom and Corinne Bailey Rae, but these are tenuous reference points at best. Fiona is really carving a niche of her own here.

Fiona’s rich lilt and jaunty instrumentation are particularly charming on “Rebel Without a Cause,” “Slo Mo Tiger Glo” and the lovely “Us and the Darkness.”

The standout track “The Machine” dives into murkier, funkier waters.

Other highlights are Fiona’s exquisite, multi-faceted vocal on “Monsoon Sundance,” the enchanting, buoyant “Pirates and Diamonds” and the simpler beauty of “Forwards.”

I expect Fiona Bevan’s Talk to Strangers to make it on my best of the year list for 2014.

Introducing Fiona Bevan…

Cool voice, cool music, cool hair. There aren’t many artists who can truly be called unique these days, but Fiona Bevan is truly unique. The British singer-songwriter only recently released her debut album, Talk to Strangers, but chances are you’ve already heard her music. Fiona co-wrote the One Direction hit “Little Things” with Ed Sheeran and the 5 Seconds of Summer single “Voodoo Doll.” Her own recordings are even more interesting, such as the London riot-inspired single “Rebel Without a Cause.” You can watch the official video below along with a live performance of “The Machine.” And a free, legal mp3 of the track “Slo Mo Tiger Glo” is available for download at Amazon.
