UK Artist of the Week: Martha Hill

Newcastle based singer-songwriter Martha Hill’s vibrant new single “Change” is an indie-pop banger from the offset which certainly seems to be putting the newcomer on the map. 

Combining jangling guitars with colourful synths and colloquial lyricism, Martha reminds us what happens when indie is done right. Tackling the universally relatable themes of growing up, nostalgia, and paths not taken, it is drawn entirely from Martha’s own experience of leaving her hometown of Dunoon, Scotland when she was seventeen to busk around Europe.

“Change” tracks her journey from a teenager desperate to get out of home to returning as an adult with a fresh perspective and appreciating it in a new light. “After coming home as an adult and seeing how strong the community is and how supportive everyone is, I just felt really lucky and proud to have grown up there,” Martha says.

The track is the first new release from Martha since her “Summer Up North” EP which was released last year. “Change” is the first track to be revealed off an upcoming EP, which is due in stores in the summer—so watch this space!
