London-based singer-songwriter Phoenix Martins just released her follow-up single ‘Sideways’ on October 21st via Sandy Enterprise, and it is now accompanied by a groundbreaking video that completely fulfills her visual angle. Conflating urbanity with classical influences, and a genuine awareness of the emotional importance of every sound she creates, Phoenix Martins is an expert at crafting deliciously poppy hooks from genuine feelings, without making the sort of music that might come across as overblown. The song is styled, but maintains a constant feeling that never let's the song go overboard. There’s no doubt that ‘Sideways’ carries a heavy weight – you can hear it in every blushing violin and every twinkling chord, but this is the sort of track that presses on regardless, Martin’s vocals tinged with regret as she croons: “And we go sideways”. Grab the free download today and check out the new video ASAP.
