Hailing from the Scottish Highlands, but currently based in Leeds/Glasgow, Josephine Sillars is a pop musician inspired by art-pop and trip-hop, drawing comparisons to Fiona Apple and Bjork. Her new releases see her confidently experimenting with new styles and deeply personal subject matters. Her 2021 EP “Desperate Characters”, funded by Help Musicians, was described as “compelling and expansive” (Tenement TV) and as “hands down one of the finest Scottish releases of 2021” (Small Music Scene), with lead single “Enemy” selected as Track of the Week for BBC Introducing in West Yorkshire and as 71 out of 100 Top Tunes in Scotland 2021 (The Herald). She released her debut vinyl “Spend Time Wasting” via Leeds label Come Play With Me in November 2022, a 7″ split with Fuzz Lightyear. “Spend Time Wasting” was featured as a Track of the Week for God Is In the TV, and described as “dreamy and immersive” by Tenement TV with features in DORK, Lock Magazine and the UK Official Charts.
