Connie Constance is a London-born and based model, singer, and artist. As an opening artist for Bibi Bourelly (song-writer turned new artist) at a show last year in the U.K. along with other underground singers like Tilla, she is starting to garner attention as a musician. Her understanding of script is that of a spoken word poet, so her first song, one of the three she has posted on SoundCloud, seems like poetry. Sometimes really good music will feel good on your skin, and “Stars” by Constance is just like that. Constance explores various mediums in her art, as in her music video for “Stars” she is seen performing modern dance. The song is full of soul, and allows her voice to be highlighted.
Similarly, “Lose My Mind” by Constance evokes a similar feeling. In moments she layers her voice, adding loops of tracks of the same lyrics following one after another, creating a gospel sensation. It has a simple melody, and her lyrics are mainly just accompanied by a piano.
The ease and clarity of her songs feels unpretentious and down-to-earth and is a nice change from the over-produced, over-edited music that dominates the industry today. While DJs and producers control the current musical sphere, Constance gives listeners a break, with a light but uncompromising sound.
