VIDEO: Eliza Doolittle “Creep”

Here at The Kaje we can’t get enough of the pop phenomenon that is Eliza Doolittle. Having been fans of hers for a few years, we are delighted to see that Eliza is now riding high in the charts. Yet, even we were beyond blown away by this emotive cover of Radiohead’s “Creep”. Better than the original?  You decide…

The Kaje talks Summer Sundae Weekender to Eliza Doolittle

Eliza Doolittle comes from theatrical stock – her Grandmother is Sylvia Young and her parents the acclaimed West End actress Frances Ruffele and Honorary Associate Director of the Royal Shakespeare Company John Caird. Unsurprisingly, Dootlittle started out as an actress before turning singer/songwriter. With her singles and debut album shooting simultaneously up the charts, Doolittle wants us all to “Pack Up” and head accross to Leicester’s Summer Sundae Weekender. The Kaje took a moment to find out why…

Summer Sundae Weekender kicks off in August. What’s your favourite thing about summer festivals?

The thing I like the most is the fact that so many people gather together to just have a good time, listen to music and be as happy as possible!

What can we expect from your show?

Me and three beautiful boys singing and playing our hearts out!

Summer Sundae is renowned for showcasing emerging talent. Which new band are you most looking forward to catching?

I’ve heard that Tincy Stryder is playing and I’m very interested to see him live.

The festival has also been graced by legends like Patti Smith, Billy Bragg and Chrissie Hynde. What’s your fondest festival memory?

I think being overwhelmed by the crowd of people all watching the Kings of Leon at Glastonbury two years ago. Best feeling in my tummy.

The festival turns ten this year – how did you celebrate your tenth birthday?

I think it might have been easter on my 10th birthday and I remember doing an easter egg hunt. Oh what fun !

ALBUM REVIEW: Eliza Doolittle “Eliza Doolittle”

Label: Parlophone
Release Date: 21.06.2010

Following her second single release “Pack Up”, Eliza Doolittle is set to release herself eponymous debut album upon the summer ears of the UK.

This album really could become the soundtrack of summer 2010, laced with its blissful melodies that will have you humming and whistling for some time after…even after only listening to the record once. Doolittle’s voice lends itself perfectly to the album, which seems to shift and switch almost every track to a different genre. This does showcase Doolittle as a greatly ranged singer, adapting to each genre with ease and maturity for such a singer of her age. However this constant shift does make it hard for the album to flow from one track to another or create a sense of a journey.

Nevertheless there is no doubting the talent offered from young Doolittle. Whilst the more down tempo tracks such as “So High” and “Nobody” show off a vulnerable innocent voice, you can’t help but feel that other tracks like “Track 1” and “Go Home” will sooner rather than later be snapped up by some advertisement king and used for a mobile phone or broadband advert.

For a debut album, this is a really strong effort from Eliza Doolittle, especially when we are in a world where it seems like everyone is copying someone else in the music industry. Here we have something a little different, whilst still maintaining its mainstream appeal and familiarity. I look forward to the next single off the album (so long as it’s not the questionable “Mr Medicine”) and expect to hear a lot more of this young talented singer.

Rating: 4/5
