On ‘The Perfect Life’, the stunning final single taken from this record, we find the Preston-native lamenting to a life of “allowing yourself to be controlled by the people around you and thinking they’re so much higher up than you” and the challenge of breaking free from that cycle. A beautifully crafted piece of dark-pop it lushly pairs lofi, chunky guitars with Hall’s soaring vocal.

With the record written, recorded and produced by Pip this is the deeply personal sound of an artist navigating the impending doom of adulthood with gloriously universal wit, charm and beauty.

“6ft 2 and I’m walking with you I’ll catch my breath when you tell me to
And all my efforts and all my time were wasted on you with the perfect life

And I’ll tell you now what I told you then, I’m alright on the sub bench
take a look in my eyes and what do you see, your world is too much for me

6ft 2 and I’m talking to you I’ll hold my breath till you want me to
‘cause all my blessings and all my crimes will be wasted on you with the perfect life

Now I’m breaking from the cycle ‘cause I’ll make it all on my own
I won’t break my pride and I won’t waste your time anymore.”

Released June 11th, 2018

Pip Hall might share youth, a label and a flare for the emotional , Pip’s offering, “James”, is a raw slice of emotional outpouring. This is never more obvious than on the stunning title track, Pip’s tribute to her late father, who died when she was young; is part beautiful homage to his memory, part honest recollection of her struggles to grow up without him around.

Musically, across the EP, Pip shows a wonderful dexterity, from the fluttering electronics and Fleetwood Mac-like melodies of Devil You Don’t, to the driving twangy guitars of Turn Over. Throughout they are all pinned together by Pip’s frankly stunning vocal, an instrument capable of effortlessly shifting from an impassioned howl to an intricate whisper. At barely sixteen, Pip Hall is a mercurial talent, a songwriter with unlimited potential, and already quite probably Preston’s most famous musical daughter. If James is an intriguing introduction, where she goes next might just be incredible try and catch her while you can.

Preston’s ludicrously talented teen-songwriter Pip Hall is set to release a new EP, James, on My Little Empire in March, ahead of that release Pip has shared the second taste of the record, with a brand new track, “Turn Over”.

Built around layers of melodic electric guitars, and sturdy percussion, “Turn Over” showcases a more moody indie-rock side to her craft than Pip’s previous output, but it suits her well and the layered vocals remain a harmonious treat. There’s shades of Honeyblood at their most groove-driven, or even 100 Broken Windows-era Idlewild. Like its predecessor, Devil You Don’t, “Turn Over” again showcases a young and talented musician with a huge future – remember the name Pip Hall.

Ludicrously young and talented in equal measures, Pip Hall is a sixteen-year-old songwriter from Preston. 2016 saw her release her debut EP, Sisters, and she’s set to return with a second effort, James, due out in March via My Little Empire.

Pip recently shared the first taste of James, with the sublime Devil You Don’t; Pip’s voice reminiscent of Lorde or Jesca Hoop, accompanied by fluttering electronics and pounding drum beat, it was a track that sounded like Fleetwood Mac, only without the multi-million pound budget. Showcasing maturity in both her voice and her songwriting, Pip Hall is a musician with the world at her feet. With plenty of people tipping her for big things, we wouldn’t be at all surprised if 2017 proves to be a break-out year for Pip, who is already to the best of our knowledge our favourite musician from Preston.
