Over the last few years Connie Constance had to make bold moves to carve her own path. After releasing music on her independent label Jump The Fence for two years, she has now signed with indie label Play It Again Sam. Her unique indie pop tracks infused with punk and soul have been well received, earning her recognition from BBC Radio 1 and praise from The Guardian for her “strikingly effective combination of disparate strains of British pop.
The Watford-born 27-year-old has remained laser focused on putting out music that fits how she sees the world rather than how the world sees her. Her new album, Miss Power, features powerful drums, playful guitar riffs, and feminist themes. The album’s lyrics reflect the challenges that women, particularly Constance as a songwriter, face in rallying against external voices. To ensure creative control, Constance prefers to keep her work closely guarded and avoid receiving too many opinions on her demos. Her journey in the music industry serves as an inspiration to rising alternative black girls like WILLOW and Nova Twins, who have demonstrated that natural hair and underground sounds can be embraced in the mainstream.
