Full of personality, powerhouse vocals and the potentials for true pop stardom, ‘Bad Habit’ is a stellar second offering from the Rugby-born, London-based popstar in the making. Written with Freedo (Zara Larsson ‘Lush Life’) and Lucy Pawws (Dua Lipa ‘Be The One’), ‘Bad Habit’ follows Blithe’s perfect debut ‘Mission’. A refreshing young artist clearly armed with attitude (and choruses) to spare, Blithe’s already showcasing the ability to reach audiences far beyond her roots.
Speaking on the track, Blithe said:
“I wrote Bad Habit about addiction. It’s very personal and real to me, but I wanted to make it playful. I’m the sort of person that will run back to bad things and people a million times in the name of love, even though I know it will end in destruction. I find foolishness in love all very romantic. One bad decision leads to another and that leads you back into the arms of someone you love and in the end it falls apart and the cycle starts again.”
Blithe is a brand new pop-star-in-the-making who arrives, as if fully formed, well and truly on a ‘Mission’. Putting her own suburban UK twist on global influences ranging from Pink, Katy Perry and Cardi B to Camilla Cabello, growing up in Rugby Blithe’s dreams never exactly felt close to hand. A restless student – “I was excluded for a week once for ordering a ton of pizzas,” she recalls now – Blithe slowly managed to filter her cheek, self-deprecation and irrepressible energy into songs which matched her ambitions. She moved to London aged 16, later honing in on a sound that channels “a dark past, sex and heartbreak” into her forthcoming debut EP.
‘Bad Habit’ is an exceptional track from Blithe and with new music to come and a London headline show in the pipeline, if it’s pop that stands for something you’re after, there should only be one name on your lips
