Video Of The Day – FINDLAY – Greasy Love


The thing about us here at the VPME is, if we love something we’ll bang on and on about it!  Because with so much new music being released that’s sometimes the only way to get the message through.  And to that end, we’ve been banging on all year about just how great Manchester lass Findlay is.  We interviewed her back in February HERE we appeared on BBC 6 Music HERE  and Amazing Radio HERE in an effort to spread the word.  2013 has undoubtedly been a great year for Findlay and her fantastic band.  She stole the show at Liverpool Sound City, upstaging the likes of Savages with a memorable performance; she took the roof off at The Great Escape and induced mass moshing at the Reading and Leeds festival.

Now after playing support to the likes of Jake Bugg and Miles Kane her first big label single ‘Greasy Love’ produced by Flood is unleashed via Polydor on  25th November.  The video features a nocturnal Natalie (for that is her name) hungrily prowling the streets of London, dressed like a vampy extra from TRON on Halloween. Doubtless being a northern girl at heart, she’s in search of a decent pasty from Greggs The Baker as opposed to your typical Southern cuisine because y’know,  sometimes a Quorn alfalfa and dill wrap served on a bed of organic wasabi rocket, topped with pine nuts and drizzled with locally-sourced sweet berry coulis just simply will not fill the hunger void!  Indeed this may well have informed the song title…or possibly not Wink .  However ‘Greasy Love’ is a statement of intent and highlights her unhinged bluesy powerhouse of a voice allied to visceral tribal beats, and it’s shot through with a ferocious rock n roll swagger that those who’ve witnessed her live performances will know all about!

And so we will continue to forecast that Findlay is gonna become HUGE in 2014 whilst clarifying that this prediction has absolutely nothing to do with her pasty consumption and all to do with her musical talent.
