“Now I’m pulling out of your driveway/finally I’m living, not surviving,” Holly Humberstone’s direct and raw lyricism cuts through horizon-breaking guitar lines, “...with the windows down I am reborn.” This title track is a glorious affirmation for the young artist and a reset, opening Paint My Bedroom Black – the most highly anticipated debut albums of recent times.
Always inspired by her environment and how that affects her sense of self and identity, from her parent’s Haunted House to flatshares in London with The Walls Are Way To Thin, award winning British singer songwriter Holly Humberstone's highly anticipated debut album Paint My Bedroom Black represents Holly’s coming of age, growing from unknown singer at her parent’s piano to the most exciting alternative pop stars of her generation.
The dark and otherworldly space Holly has built and invited fans into, both sonically and visually, has been lucid and visceral, with the camera always on her shoulder, a lens into her chaotic thoughts and deep feelings. Already nominated for two Ivor Novello’s, winning the BRIT Rising Star in 2022 and coming runner up in BBC Sound Of 2021, Humberstone’s bear-all storytelling is the heart of her craft, with new songs “Antichrist” and “Room Service”, the double A-Side single that reflect her introspection and extraversion, two opposing artistic multitudes that inform Holly’s lyricism and sound. The new parts of Holly appear on “Antichrist”, an exposing image of her last break-up, a heartbreak ballad of self-loathing, set against propulsive pop, juxtaposed against delicate “Room Service”, an ode to locking yourself away from the world. The introduction of these two starkly different tracks act as a revolving door into the visceral duality of Holly Humberstone, as Paint My Bedroom Black builds on the 23-year-old’s kinetic storytelling touch and Holly’s power for characterising our most tumultuous moments – as the bad friend trying to make good and a lost soul propelled through post breakup mania.
