A new irregular feature on DiS where we ask an artist we like to make us a mixtape.
First up is a new act called FOE. So new in fact, she hasn't even released her debut single yet. It's coming soon though, via a new label called Stella Mortos on April 4th. It's called 'Tyrant Song' and it sort of has the eccentric-pop fizz of Patrick Wolf and the punk-spunk of Uffie dripping all over Kills-ish guitars soaked in grunge. Or just bash play and have a listen:
We've heard her on tracks with Entrepreneurs and noticed FOE making mixtapes on Soundcloud since we first saw her at last year's Great Escape, so we thought who better to kick off this new mixtape monday feature...
Here's a little letter she wrote to accompany the 'tape'...
