Londoner Fyfe (aka. Paul Dixon) is truly a remarkable artist. Coupled with slick beats, cool guitar melodies, and a velvety, melancholic vocal and intensely catchy hooks, he’ll have you caught up in his web in no time at all.
Currently on tour with Foxes, he’s sure to be turning many heads and making lots of new fans in the process. I was lucky to catch his set last night in Manchester, and he blew me away. His performance is very captivating and moving, he’ll have you swaying in no time. He released his début EP, Solace, back in April, which gained him backing from Radio 1 and Xfm, lots of attention from various press bigwigs, being featured on The Guardian’s New Band of the Day section and being featured in Clash magazine.
Melodically and lyrically, I’d say that Fyfe could give Bipolar Sunshine a run for his money, it’s close between them two for me, but both have something really special to offer. Fyfe also has this experimental side to him that wouldn’t be out of place next to Australian artists like Gotye and Jonti. The intensity of his music is something so sweet and beautiful to hear, he is definitely one of my favourite new artists to come out of this year for sure.
