WALL is a south London producer, singer and song writer who’s minimal approach to pop is grabbing the attention of music lovers everywhere. She says she’s influenced by St Vincent and Patti Smith but from what we’ve heard she very much has her own style. We caught up with the singer to find out where she spends her time when she’s hanging out in London…
The Bridge, Shoreditch: It’s a strange little cafe. It stays open late and they have intriguing cakes, a CD player, gareish decor and a unisex toilet. This is the kind of place you could go to on your own and people watch for a good few hours.
Brixton Village: It’s the best place to go and eat. It’s loud and shouty, there’s a fish mongers next to a pizza place and a shop selling solely wigs and toothpast (open late), plus THE BEST Jerk Chicken!
Trisha’s, Soho: It’s the perfect late-night hideout. It’s a bit dingy and gets cramped at weekends, but mid-week it’s the only way to drink late. You can quite easily get the feeling you’ve seen a face before, it’s that type of bar.
Bush Hall, Shepherd’s Bush: A beautiful stage to watch a band. I don’t like big, corporate venues, this is just about right. My favourite show there was Jenny & Johnny with La Sera. My friend Dan got a black and yellow T-shirt he wears all the time.
Coronet, Notting Hill Gate: It has a romantic theatre style screen and on Tuesday nights it’s only £3 a ticket. Only the old and privileged go to the flicks normally, because somewhere along the line it became alright to charge the amount of a weekly shop for a ticket. Not here! You can also sneak a bottle of wine in, or can you do that at all cinemas?
You can catch WALL live this Wednesday (15th August) at the Sebright Arms in Bethnal Green. Get tickets here.
