Quilla Constance is probably one of the most original music acts to emerge at this time.
She is a talented dancer and conceptual artist who is using the medium of pop music to explore the questions her art raises.
Think that sounds weird and wonderful? Wait until you hear her debut single - "Snow Daddy".
The controversial music of Quilla is best described as Electronica Punk but you could definitely liken "Snow Daddy" to dance music; and yet it's so much better than any of the dance music you'll hear in the charts right now.
It's had the Midas Touch of talented producer and composer David Greenfield who co-wrote the song with Quilla Constance, recorded her vocals and made the beats and sounds complement each other.
What makes it more interesting is that it's actually a darkly witty track about a Trust-afarian using daddy's money to fund her Cocaine habit!
"Snow Daddy" hasn't got an official release date yet (it's looking like November 2009 - to go with the snow theme!) so I feel very honoured to have been able to listen to it, and the only way I was able to even find out about it was through meeting Quilla Constance and her producer personally. Get me!
Quilla Constance told me:
"My punk vocal delivery for 'Snow Daddy' has been described as 'edgy and sardonic' and the sound of my vocal has been compared to 'Lene Lovich' from the 70s." I myself was reminded of Natalie Bassingthwaite's vocals for Voodoo Child, with the Rogue Traders.
Go to Quilla Constance's myspace at http://www.myspace.com/quillaconstance to be one of the lucky first few to listen to the first mix of "Snow Daddy"
I'm looking forward to seeing the accompanying video - which will include Quilla Constance performing!
