Here’s a band you’re likely to hear a lot more from in the coming months. A four-piece electro-pop act based in London, Woman’s Hour is just now coming on the radar, but they’ve already made best-of lists on publications like BBC6 Music and Line of Best Fit for last year’s tunes “Darkest Place” and “Thunder,” as well as an impressive cover of Leona Lewis’ “Bleeding Love.”
Their just-released new single “Her Ghost,” is their first track since signing to the Secretly Canadian label. I love the understated haunting vocal delivery of Fiona Jane on this track, laid over lush synths and U2-esque effected guitars. This isn’t electro-pop of the dance variety; this music has a slower, darker, more melancholy vibe that I find totally captivating. I can’t wait to hear more.
“Her Ghost” will be available here in the U.S. as a digital download next week, with a 7” vinyl release scheduled for next month. No word yet on an album, but with the waves Woman’s Hour is making, I have a hard time believing it isn’t too far behind. See what you think!
