Globelamp will be spending some quality time in London over the next two months.
The musician, born Elizabeth le Fey, supports Mothers on 18 May at Chats Palace. On 7 June she performs her debut headline show in the city at Servant’s Jazz Quarters, a day before a free in-store at Rough Trade West.
Le Fey, whose stage name was inspired by Francesca Lia Block’s book ‘Witch Baby’, is currently building up to the release of her album ‘The Orange Glow’ and has just released the video for the song ‘Controversial/Confrontational’.
“Betrayal is a topic most people can relate to,” she says of the clip, directed by Elva Lexa and inspired by the simplicity of David Bowie’s ‘Life On Mars’ video.
With a voice compared to the likes of Kate Bush and Stevie Nicks, Le Fey first made a name for herself as a member of the punk band Meowtain and then as the White Witch of Foxygen before writing, producing, and recording ‘Star Dust’, her debut as Globelamp.
‘The Orange Glow’, made over the course of a with year LA-based producer Joel Jerome, follows a painful breakup and her best friend’s death and is “a reflection of the last year and a half and how I got out of it alive”.
It is released on 10 June 2016.
