BALCONYTV LONDON 6/05/2010
PRESENTED BY RUTH MEDJBER
Having already seen comparisons to Moldy Peaches Kimya Dawson and Martha Wainwright, the wonderful Lail Arad is a 26 year-old singer/songwriter from London-via-Israel. She couples sophisticated folk/ pop with some wonderfully sharp & funny lyrics. Shes already performed an impromptu version of her song Winter alongside Devendra Banhart and is gearing up for the release of her debut album in the spring. I am totally in love with the tongue-in-cheek video she shot after seeing Adam Green perform in London.
Make no mistake, this girl is going places! She has all the panache of a Kate Nash or a Lily Allen but in a more sensual, fun way. Sure, there is more polishing of the rough edges, but not too much I hope. There is something endearing in the DIY videos she has produced thus far. I am really loving this girl! Enthused? You bet I am!! Will have much more to tell you about Lail over the next few weeks, but for now enjoy the first taster from the album.www.myspace.com/lailarad
