Introducing Italian-born, London-based, Alice Pisano, a rising star in the contemporary pop scene. Blessed with a uniquely warm and silky voice, Pisano has a natural ability for writing relatable, emotive songs that connect and since her debut in 2019, she has garnered a fantastic name for herself.
Her five-track sophomore EP, Shattered But Still Cool, is a collection of songs about the tribulations of love and dating, from the frustrations of dating apps (Boys Like You), to the first spark (Ink), to falling in love (Where My Heart Is) and dealing with a cheating partner (Pretty Girls). Through honest songwriting, Pisano shares her vulnerabilities delivering them in the most infectious and shimmering pink package.
Pisano worked alongside acclaimed songwriters and producers on the EP, including Jez Ashurst (Little Mix, Maisie Peters, Tom Grennan), Anthony Goldsbrough (toured with Ed Sheeran, Clean Bandit), Gavin Powell, (Emeli Sandè, Jake Isaac) and Dan Cox (Laura Marling, Peter Doherty). Sonically inspired by the likes of Nina Nesbitt, Gabrielle Aplin, Astrid S and Julia Michaels, Shattered But Still Cool isa deliciously addictive release, showcasing the singer’s impressive vocals, sugar-coated melodies and vibrant synths.
“Pretty Girls” narrates a very personal experience for the songwriter. She shares, “I was dating someone who seemed very smitten and in love, only to discover he was actually dating other girls at the same time. I was furious when I wrote this song and it was very liberating!” “Pretty Girls” results in being the perfect mood booster. This is the anthem for anyone who has been messed around by their partner (or situationship), a reminder that they’re not alone and that they deserve so much better! The EP also features an acoustic version of “Where My Heart Is” recorded at Spotify Noteable Studios in London.
Accumulating a huge amount of Spotify editorial support, the first three singles from Pisano’s upcoming EP – “Boys Like You”, “Ink” and “Where My Heart Is” – made their way to Spotify’s Global Fresh Finds playlist, 6 New Music Fridays, New Pop UK, as well as many more editorial playlists. As well as garnering critical acclaim from online tastemakers including Clash, Earmilk, Wonderland, METAL and Atwood Magazine, “Boys Like You” was regularly played on BBC Radio Wales and Pisano was also interviewed live by H from Steps on his Friday Night show. With “Ink” and “Where My Heart Is” Pisano hit a major milestone in her career, as both tracks were played on BBC Radio 1’s Future Pop Show.
Pisano played two shows at The Great Escape Festival 2022 and was one of the first 50 artists to be announced. With shining global success, her debut single “Celebrate Life” garnered over four million Spotify streams alone. Following her successful debut, Pisano also had four singles enter the iTunes Pop charts, numerous radio plays on stations including the BBC and over one million views on TikTok with her single “September”. Her single “Open Up” was featured as the soundtrack to the summer trailer of the British hit TV series Hollyoaks. Needless to say, Alice Pisano is quickly establishing herself as one of the most exciting new artists on the pop scene.
Alice Pisano will be performing her first ever headline show at The Grace, London on the 9th Feb. Get tickets HERE!
