If you’ve ever had the privilege of watching Eve Conway’s live performance, you are guaranteed to have been blown away by her explosive vocal style. Known for her effective use of live looping, her performances are consistently memorable. This new track sees Eve taking things back to basics, with clean acoustic guitar accompaniment it’s at once exotic and darkly seductive, with a chilling, eerie undercurrent.

Roxy is a fabulous example of the singer’s intriguing capacity for storytelling, it’s a dark and yearning piece with a haunting punchline. Alongside a simple chord progression, the track is both guttural and raw, with a bluesy edge, while Eve’s passionate delivery drives home a lyrical taboo. “Roxy is a story. Sometimes it’s good to take yourself out of the emotional side of writing to tell a story of someone you’ve made up. I’ve always liked the idea of people finding their own imagery.”
