South London’s Paige Bea has returned with the blissfully soulful ‘Impossibly’, following May’s standout single, “Your Echo”
Releasing via Lapsang House, Paige has already picked up multiple spins from the likes of BBC 1Xtra (Jamz Supernova), KCRW (Jason Kramer) and Amazing Radio (Charlie Ashcroft), with early support on The Line Of Best Fit, CLASH and Spotify’s Fresh Finds: Poptronix.
Continuing to explore the darker aesthetic of her previous release, “Impossibly” begins with a brooding hand muted piano and quivering synthesisers before unexpectedly launching into Paige’s biggest chorus to date. With a headline show at DIY Space For London on the way in October and her debut EP following shortly afterwards, this release marks the beginning of a new chapter for the singer-songwriter.
“Impossibly” was written and recorded at The Premises Studios during the same day as the previous single, alongside longtime collaborator KINDER and new faces Jonjo Keefe (Park Hotel) and Teresa Origone (Bad Honey). Fusing a collective taste for jazz, soul, dark electronica and all things ethereal, the aim of the sessions was to experiment with new instrumentation and production styles.
On the new single, Paige attempts to define the untimely feeling of disappointment experienced in so many new relationships. Recounting a modern tale of impossible love, it’s a constant cycle ’because we tend to project qualities onto the other person that we think they have or want them to have, and in the end, unless we drop our own egos and narcissism we’ll end up disappointed.’ Paige is never afraid to bare all, and ‘Impossibly’ further cements the refreshing relatability injected into all she writes.
