Reliably informed

A hyperkinetic and stylistically sprawling showcase for a songwriter with a strong command of the craft and a phenomenal vocal style to boot, Noughties is the sound of an entire decade being thrown into a blender and reshaped into a three-minute opus of soulful pop, upon which Faye Fantarrow goes to task on the misrepresentation of Gen-Z in the current climate.

Noughties brilliantly articulates the frustrations of growing up in a time of radical social and cultural development without resorting to vacuous sloganeering, instead painting a rich and deep narrative over phenomenal production which masterfully mirrors the frenetic sensory-overload of living in the digital age, making for a bold statement-of-intent from one hell of a talent. Absolutely essential listening.
