Beyond the Blonde is the new EP from alternative multi-instrumentalist and storyteller Liza Bec. Bec is hard to pin down: a charismatic multi instrumentalist, singer-songwriter and author, she fuses genres from funk to folk to create her own unique sound.
The title track erupts with an explosive Northern Soul energy, winding through an inviting forest of funky bass courtesy of David Ryder Prangley (Rachel Stamp). With ardent sax and playful North African drums, the end result is a sunshiny stomper refreshingly at odds with its nihilistic themes.
TeamRock: ‘hugely talented….her voice was truly unique, and when you added her abilities on the saxophone, keyboard and recorder to the mix throughout the set, you had a potent combination’
The Guardian: ‘joyous….ecstatic, burbling flute improvisations‘
