For Fans Of: Lily Allen, Ariana Grande, London Grammar
Going from singing in a school choir to amassing nearly 50,000 monthly listeners on Spotify with only four singles on the platform, Glowe is definitely doing something right.
The 20-year-old (whose real name is Georgia Lowe) was championed by Wonderland Magazine as one of their Ones To Watch for 2019, and rightly so. Her debut single ‘Realise’ dropped in February; a mellow soul tune that highlights her soft vocals with a London-tinged twang. With lyrical honesty and a nonchalant attitude that echoes Lily Allen, she’s loaded with regional uniqueness. It caught the eye of BBC Sounds too, who added it to their ‘Hear Her’ playlist, celebrating the best songs from women in music.
Next came the R&B-infused breakup anthem ‘Stronger By The Day’, which premiered on Wonderland in April. She said of the neo-soul-inflected track “I wrote this song for other girls (and guys) to understand that it’s okay to break up with someone and your life won’t end there.” Continuing this empowered breakup-fueled high, she released ‘Falling’ a few months later, along with her debut music video. Directed by Savannah Seymour, Glowe can be seen getting on with her life after the split, whilst reaching out to her female fans “Baby Girl, don’t give up on the world, that boy ain’t even worth it”.
A few weeks ago, she dropped her latest smooth, shimmering release, ‘Don’t Let Me Down’. Mixed by Jamie Ellis, who has previously worked with non other than The 1975, there is a noticeable pop infusion in this song that shows a new side to Glowe’s talents as her vocals come in stronger than ever.
Glowe is set to be the artist you regret not knowing from the start, so what are you waiting for…?glowe / introducing
