Undoubtedly one of the UK’s brightest breakout names in R&B and Soul, Manchester-born Pip Millett had a prolific 2020 in which she followed up on 2019’s acclaimed debut EP “Do Well” and recent releases “Deeper Dark” and “June” with her striking second EP “Lost In June” and later bonus single “Stupid People”.
“Lost In June” is a significant body of work and showcased a level of control and subtlety in vocal style that underlines why the Manchester-born artist is considered one of the UK’s most exciting new voices. Including singles “Ava”, “Deeper Dark” and “June”, in addition to three new tracks and bonus track “Stupid People” it’s a genuinely stunning, personal collection.
The dry, wistful wit of “Like It Like That” to the finessed, controlled temper of “Heavenly Mother”, the EP is a vivid, highly personal story that marks out Pip’s vulnerabilities and strengths, lined with a rare intelligence and stylistic flair that’s touched with a knowingness and nostalgia that at only 22 is a revelation.
With a remarkable COLORS performance of her debut release “Make Me Cry” establishing Pip as a unique new talent (now with over 4.2M views and counting), she released her debut EP ‘Do Well’ at the end of June last year alongside a feature length visual directed by KC Locke (Ed Sheeran, Stormzy, Mahalia) who reached out after hearing her music.
Making increasingly influential waves since her debut in both the UK and US, support has been swift with the likes of THE FADER, PIGEONS&PLANES, i-D, WONDERLAND and MANCHESTER EVENING NEWS all proclaiming a potent new force. Meanwhile Pip has picked up viral support across the likes of BBC R1 and 1Xtra – her unique style and ability to address heavyweight topics marking her out as a unique and charismatic talent (including a certain Jorja Smith, who continues to champion her).
