Selected Reviews and Comments

“A strikingly effective combination of disparate strains of British pop: the quasi-spoken verses bristle with the barked beauty of Paul Weller; the cathartic chorus reaches Florence-worthy heights” - The Guardian

Indie rock star Connie Constance releases new track, ‘Mood Hoover’, from her forthcoming album, ‘Miss Power’ due out 4th November on Play It Again Sam. Full of killer melodies and scintillating lyrics, ‘Mood Hoover’ is a love-hate song complete with playful guitar riffs and one of Connie’s trademark anthemic choruses.

Connie on the track: “The writing of this song came from one of my mum’s classic phrases….. “mood hoover” she would call my adolescent brother when he would finally make it down to dinner to be around his (from his teenage point of view) out of touch parents and uncool siblings, and not really want to engage in our family chit chat. I was in the studio with Sam Breathwick and Sam Knowles and we were jamming through some ideas. Sammy K said to me that it would be fun if I wrote a song about me and my man but from more of a love hate perspective. All those bits about your lover that drive you nuts but you couldn’t live without. I had ‘mood hoover’ written down in my notes and Sam Knowles had ‘easy peeler’ written down under his band names. From there I dived into my little bit sarcy, little bit cheeky and a little bit moody perspective. This song is our “us against the world” song. Could be your lover, or your partner in crime. It’s saying that, in our unique bubble, we’re the most awesome people in the world - with all our jagged edges, baggage, dreams, and quirks…. People just don’t know it yet, but one day they will.”

Over the last 12 months, the Watford-born, 27-year-old has remained laser focussed on putting out music that fits how she sees the world rather than how the world sees her. And she takes her place among rising alternative female black artists from WILLOW to Nova Twins who have proved that natural hair and underground sounds don’t make you niche. The success of previous singles ‘Miss Power’ and ‘Till the Worlds Awake’ both featured on the Radio 1 C-List shows her venture out into the world as her authentic self has paid off. This month also saw Connie perform album tracks live at the legendary Maida Vale studios which went out on Clara Amfo’s BBC Radio 1 show. Cementing her indie/punk status, Connie performed an electrifying and quickly approved cover of Bloc Party’s classic ‘Helicopter’.

Taking festival season by storm, Connie never fails to connect with her fans - who she calls ‘the Gremlins’ - starting then joining them in mosh pits around the UK and Europe. Connie’s own UK headline tour SOLD OUT way in advance and her uncompromising and visceral performance at The Great Escape earlier this year was a roadblock and real festival highlight.
