20-year-old Misty Miller from South London covers the 1978 track ‘Another Girl, Another Planet’ by The Only Ones.
If, like us, you religiously watch all the Burberry Acoustic sessions to discover new talent, you’ll have seen Misty Miller before. 16-years-old and singing a song called ‘Remember’ in Wimbledon with a ukelele and shining with innocence. She’s reappeared on our radar four years later and the blonde hair’s gone black, she’s got an electric guitar and tattoos. Misty Miller is all grown up and it’s great.
Sweetness has been replaced by a gravelly drawl and a confident nonchalance. She’s citing her influences as The Velvet Underground and Blondie, so she’s learnt from studying the best and working with them too, having collaborated with Fat White Family’s ex-drummer, Dan Lyons, on some of her album tracks. Working with one of the kings of the UK punk scene has no doubt added to her grunge edge.
Last year Misty’s singles ‘Taxi Cab’, ‘Stars’ and ‘Marmalade’ got her significant recognition, which is sure to be furthered with the release of her EP, ‘Sweet Nothing’, next month. The 5 track collection features her cover of ‘Another Girl, Another Planet’ and she’ll be showcasing her new songs at six shows around the country throughout February and March, all kicking off at The Old Blue Last on the 10th.
