Sunday Girl (AKA Jade Williams) has been creating quite a buzz in the blogging community lately, with her first single "Four Floors" heading straight to the top of the Hype Machine chart through blogging buzz alone.
She claimed her slightly odd moniker through working in a pet store on Sundays when she was 14. No one could remember her name and so just called her Sunday Girl and it apparently stuck. I have to say the name has made me remember her, from when she was first mentioned to me at the start of the year, and has made me check out her music when given the chance. Something about her has clearly made others sit up and notice too, seeing she has been featured in Dazed and Confused, NME and on the Guardian paper's website. A keen blogger herself, her blog has quickly become one of my favourites since I bookmarked it a few months ago.
This single is called "Self Control" and is a cover of a song originally by RAF and later a hit for Laura Branigan in the States. I am not usually a big fan of covers, but when an artist can stamp their unique stye on a song like Sunday Girl does here then I am all for them.
Give it a listen, check out her myspace, and look forward to downloading this track on the 2nd of August.
In addition to listening to this tune, Sunday Girl is currently running a promotion where you can download the acapella version of "Self Control" and remix it yourself. If you have the skills needed then give it a go here
