BALCONYTV LONDON 6/05/2010
PRESENTED BY RUTH MEDJBER
Having already seen comparisons to Moldy Peaches Kimya Dawson and Martha Wainwright, the wonderful Lail Arad is a 26 year-old singer/songwriter from London-via-Israel. She couples sophisticated folk/ pop with some wonderfully sharp & funny lyrics. Shes already performed an impromptu version of her song Winter alongside Devendra Banhart and is gearing up for the release of her debut album in the spring. I am totally in love with the tongue-in-cheek video she shot after seeing Adam Green perform in London.
Make no mistake, this girl is going places! She has all the panache of a Kate Nash or a Lily Allen but in a more sensual, fun way. Sure, there is more polishing of the rough edges, but not too much I hope. There is something endearing in the DIY videos she has produced thus far. I am really loving this girl! Enthused? You bet I am!! Will have much more to tell you about Lail over the next few weeks, but for now enjoy the first taster from the album.
BalconyTV London is produced by Ruth Medjber
Tune in again tomorrow!!!
