Daily Dose Pick: Paloma Faith


Running the classic soul of Billie Holiday and Etta James through a kaleidoscopic-carnival filter, British singer Paloma Faith’s debut album asks, Do You Want the Truth or Something Beautiful?

Faith’s combination of ’40s jazz conceits with modern pop has earned her comparisons to fellow Brits Amy Winehouse and Duffy, but her sense of spectacle and grandeur puts her more in line with the more elegant likes of the long-standing Angela McCluskey. From her album art to her stage shows and videos, Faith puts as much focus on enchanting with visuals as with sound, ensuring a wholly immersive experience in her delightful burlesque circus of a world.
