"Pear-Shaped Girl"

‘Pear-Shaped Girl’/ ‘Green’ (Single, Xpress)

Surprises are lovely, aren’t they? Take this locally produced double A-side from 18-year-old chanteuse Savage and her backing band The Doohickies. You might as well expect, from the title, an oestrogen-laden barefoot piano ballad, perhaps Tori Amos’s ‘Cornflake Girl’ only with lyrics bemoaning the insensitivity of patriarchal society towards the female body.

But, pop out the Pimms! What you get instead is a slice of sassy, skirt-flipping swing-folk- all heavy bass, “shoop-da-doop”s and flirty vocals – that’s more like Michelle Shocked crossed with the ‘Belleville Rendezvous’ soundtrack and contains not an atom of self-pity (though to be fair, she’s more of an asparagus spear than a pear, judging from the video). It’s followed up by a scat-dappled, sax and banjo-fuelled jitterbug ‘Green’ creating, in effect, a Twix-like twin pack of yumminess.

Go Lenny! You could be Nailsea’s Lily Allen!

Bio

With her debut album 'Quaintrelle' out in early 2010, West Country Acoustic Musician, Lenny Savage comes of age in a blaze of musical glory.

Promising an album infused with a “newfound force of womanhood and love of intellect”, Lenny is currently engaged in training up her freshly-recruited band members in preparation for their roles of being “rather dandy”.

She’s also getting overly excited to see what the public make of her revamped sound and strikingly visual ‘Quaintrelle’ persona.

While influenced by many genres from across the world, Lenny retains a sense of playful musical quirkiness that’s somehow both very British and disarmingly all her own.

Elements of folk, swing, rock, grunge, synth-pop, dub, Latin and African music swirl in the mix along with Lenny’s original love for all things acoustical.

But 'Quaintrelle' isn't an acoustic album, oh no. It's exactly how she wants it – wildly expressive, blindingly sincere, scintillatingly sensual and, ultimately, never less than confusingly fascinating.

Lenny’s out there and 'Quaintrelle' is coming your way - keep Listening.

Influenced by Adam & The Ants, David Bowie, Alanis Morissette, Fiona Apple
