We first featured Alice Offley on RCM back in 2016 under the guise of Alice & The Lovers with their 60s girl band drenched single ‘Valentine’ Now she returns as a solo artist with the seductive disco-funk of Pour
Alice Offley – Pour
As a professional musician and touring bass-player the Pandemic hit Alice hard, she was unable to tour (Thompson Twins, Tricky, Cyndi Lauper) and unable to work her day job singing and performing in London’s piano bars.
Written in lock-down ‘Pour’ is a re-opening anthem purposely written to help people feel good. It’s a sparkly cocktail of funk-filled disco-pop that seamlessly blends her melting pop of influences which include Prince, Madonna and Kylie. Alice (who is a distant relative of Dusty Springfield) is a classic 80s child, who describes her childhood best friend as her portable cassette player. It’s hard not to listen to this without a sense of joyous nostalgia.
