Overview

Eliza Doolittle -- strong of opinion, smiley of face, loud of tights -- was born in Camden, north London 21 years ago. Informed by the stresses of modern city life, teenage aggro, classic pop, old soul and the appeal of simple, strong melodies built from clanking percussion and jazzy licks, Eliza’s eponymous debut album is bursting at the seams with life and enthusiasm and vigour -- just like its creator.

On her debut album, Eliza marries breezily beautiful melodies and witty, erudite lyrics with a delightfully off-kilter twist and a knack for a killer hook. The opening one-two punch of "Rollerblades" and "Skinny Genes" sets out the stall perfectly, summoning to mind lost songs from the Motown era by the Marvelettes or The Supremes, complete with infectious whistling.
