Kiss FM DJ Daisy Maskell on Connie Constance's Fast Cars.
The music industry has branched off into directions that we could’ve never expected, but its sole purpose still remains the same. We listen to be transported, to connect and to relate to the lyrics of an individual that you may never have laid eyes on, but who can seem as familiar as the voice inside your own head.
Connie Constance is a young singer-songwriter from Watford who embodies what it means to be an artist in 2019. In the midst of a heavily populated market, her individuality cuts through and prevents you from skipping to the next ‘One To Watch’ on your playlist. She could sing the terms and conditions of an insurance policy and still have me infatuated.
She recently dropped debut album English Rose and I added her song Fast Cars to a playlist before getting on a flight. I’m an emotional person, but when shot 36,000 feet up into the clouds, that increases tenfold (I’ve previously burst into tears when offered a packet of Minstrels by an air hostess as they’d run out of the Maltesers I’d asked for). I pressed play again and again and cried so much I began to dehydrate!
Connie Constance makes the world seem so much smaller and strips it of all its intimidations.
