Having unveiled a slew of synth-flecked singles that sparkle with post-disco joy, London’s Vanity Fairy (AKA Daisy Capri) has fast become a playlist staple at Hidden Herd HQ.

Don’t just take our word for it though – praise for the alt-pop newcomer’s ethereal floor-fillers has been coming from all angles, with The Line Of Best Fit, Clash and BBC Radio 1’s Huw Stephens among Capri’s throng of supporters so far.

Before Vanity Fairy brings her impressive live show to Hidden Herd Presents at The Finsbury on Friday 18th October, we took the opportunity to fire some questions in her direction.

How would you describe Vanity Fairy to a stranger?

“One of the cool girls.”

Who are the biggest influences on your sound and why?

“Disco divas and smooth falsettos. Not sure why.”

What was the best gig you’ve played so far?

“I’ve had so much fun playing live the last couple of months… Five Bells, New Cross with Aldous RH, Drug Store Romeos and Faux Real for my mate Sam Huxley (who now puts on events at Venue MOT Unit 18 in Bermondsey… actually I just played a gig there with The Intergalactic Republic of Kongo who were insanely fun and talented) and Port Eliot Festival for Moshi Moshi last month was a lovely gig too.”

You’re based in London – what’s your local music scene like?

“Oh, boy. Bursting. So much good stuff out there. You can go out every night and have your ears massaged to climax.”

Who are the THREE other new artists we should listen to right now and why?

“Drug Store Romeos, WOOZE, Paradise Dose; all three are doing something really different and (to my ears) totally absorbing/compelling.”

And finally, what does the rest of 2019 hold for CC Honeymoon?

“Probably just blowin’ up across the WWW.”

Vanity Fairy will play Hidden Herd Presents at The Finsbury on Friday 18th October alongside Pelicandy, CC Honeymoon and Videocean. Free tickets are available via DICE and Eventbrite.
