Alice Low shares new single Rim Job. Alice recently toured with Buzzard Buzzard Buzzard and will perform at this year's Green Man Festival. She has also announced her first headline show, on April 8th at Chapter Arts Centre in Cardiff. With just two singles and a handful of live performances under her belt, Alice is quickly establishing herself as a unique live performer and singular artist. With support from BBC 6 Music and publications such as The Independent and The Forty-Five, Alice’s avant-garde performance, unhinged energy, and emotional lyrics have carved a niche that suggest an artist doing things entirely on their own terms. Rim Job showcases Alice's pop sensibilities through lo-fi, experimental production, reminiscent of R. Stevie Moore, where hooks and melody remain integral and pervasive.
On the new single Alice says;
"I wanted to frame my heartbreak, and pain through the hyper-sexualised and alienated lens that all transgender stories are framed. To take my universal, human experience and distort it into the only shape that the public can seemingly understand, fingers in asses, dicks in asses, and dysphoria; but by diving deeper, the only thing actually up that ass is a normal story about a relationship breaking down. Enjoy."
After failing school Alice could no longer afford to live in Brighton, so she moved to Cardiff to be close to her partner. One night, while sorting through clothes, and cleaning her room, listening to Pilot, as they did every day back then, she looked her partner in the eyes and told him she was a woman. "Something I had known for so many years, but had been too afraid to acknowledge, let alone pursue, was finally in the air, in front of us both. He looked at me with the recognition that I had been seeking my entire life, and the pain I had been carrying in my back, in my shoulders, my feet, hands, it was released like a bat through the corridors of a school after hours. Amongst our clothes, and our belonging we cried for hours. I could never thank him enough for listening to me, and seeing me, and in that moment asking no questions, just being there."
Alice's transition gave her the space to hone her talents as a musician and as a producer. "My work took on a new singularity, something more dynamic, more engaging, and totally mine"
Last year Alice won the Triskel Prize at the Welsh Music Awards, which was presented to her by Huw Stephens.
