Fact: Joy Crookes is going to be huge. Based in South London, the eighteen-year-old songstress first introduced herself with “New Manhattan”, a slow-burning and incredibly atmospheric number which showcased Crookes’ warming tones and cinematic songwriting. This past Summer saw the release of Influence, the singer’s magnificent debut EP which features the previously released singles “Sinatra” and “Bad Feeling”.
Accompanied by nothing but the simple yet elegant strums of the guitar, Joy Crookes strikes a chord from start to finish with a mesmerizing performance of “Mother May I Sleep With Danger?”, a standout cut from her Influence EP. Whether it’s subconsciously or not, you can’t help but sway along to the track as Joy’s soothing voice comforts and warms your heart. Sometimes it’s the simplest of songs that can convey the most complex of emotions and themes, and that’s exactly the case with “Mother May I Sleep With Danger?”; a self-reflective and deeply personal cut.
