Since the age of eleven, this strong and confident London based female singer has been entertaining people with her powerful singing voice. She enters the music scene of 2019 with a number called Cheap. There are many types of cheap, some good, some not so good. Both have their selling points, punk and practicality can go hand in hand after-all. Luckily this song is not cheap at all, as it's been recorded at the premium Charthouse Studios in London. That's where Pixie Lott and Sam Smith (Follow the links for collectable signed memorabilia) went to make their groundbreaking sounds. Maisie Bourke is also no stranger to Alternative Fruit, having featured in the summer with her single Don't Let Him.
It opens with a beautiful piano melody. Solemn chords delicately splash over well placed scales in runs and volleys which manage Maisie's delivery exquisitely. Sombre and heart-felt tones sing about the reality of finding that we've become something people want to imitate. Seeing cheaper versions of yourself can mean that we only have eyes for ourselves, or it can mean we've become a beacon for others to aspire to. It all depends on if we deserve to be luminary. With a voice like Maisie's, and an understanding of the social contract found in music like this, it's clear this young talent has played the right hand.
