TRACK: Lizzie Reid – ‘Seamless’: a sweet tale of heartbreak from Glasgow

LIZZIE REID is a Glaswegian singer-songwriter with an unflinching eye for detailing the rawer side of our emotional lives.

She’s just signed for Essex indie Seven Four Seven Six and in doing so brings a whole new set of initials to a label that’s also home to fellow rising talents Matilda Mann and Matt Maltese; and to mark her arrival at her new creative home, she’s shared a new song, the raw prettiness of “Seamless”, an artful detailing of the raking of the ashes of lost love.

“I still have your clothes / I’ll be wearing your jumpers,” she sings, her voice a beguiling, cracking thing. You can hear she’s feeling this; feeling this hard.

Indeed, listening back to an early version brought Lizzie to the catharsis of tears, she recalls: “I listened to the demo on the train from London to Glasgow. I had tears streaming down my face.

“That was when I realised I had written something deeply personal to me.”

If you look elsewhere in her oeuvre – and here at Backseat Mafia we’re looking forward to engagement with a longform set from her – she sings of love and loss against a backdrop of Glasgow’s streets, nightclubs and bars. More!
