Áine Currie - Sidelines 

Release Date: Out Now

17 year old Aine Currie from Paisley, Scotland, cites Beyonce, Destiny's Child and Self Esteem as key influences and you can hear that from the very start. 'Sidelines' hangs around a melody that is pure Destiny's Child but the vocal performance is one of a confident and soulful R&B artist who isn't afraid to step in to the spotlight. That Self Esteem level of passion and a hint of anger comes through brilliantly in the rapidly delivered lyrics and beat that keeps pushing things forwards relentlessly. An incredible voice, a great song and this is just the beginning so keep an ear out for this one - there's more to come I reckon.
