The UTTERLY AMAZING article below appeared on yesterday!!

Written by Alex Swadling

Her voice is bloody lovely. Seductively innocent yet as distinctive as music idol Cyndi Lauper – 20 year old student Alice Ostapjuk, is so deliciously and dangerously listenable. A witty cynic, her lyrics are clever and clash perfectly with the sweetness of her voice making her a pretty unforgettable and unique artist. And Alice is an artist – she’s worked hard to make such delectable musical produce. Taking an incredibly brave step, Alice broke away from failed bands, learnt the guitar in the space of six months, played her first gig at The Basement in York back in 2009 and shortly after was whisked away into the recording studios of ‘BBC Introducing…’. She has continued on a skyward trajectory ever since. With her single ‘Hush…It’s No Secret’ available on iTunes, Alice has also played alongside folky success story Benjamin Francis Leftwich, and has headlined her own shows with the new addition of her live band to help propel her into the next phase of vocal take-over. In fact, her manifesto would be fantastic. With songs like ‘Rage Against the Tangerine’ and ‘The RnB Song’, the observational Alice displays her penchant for people (and their bullshit), which make her songs not just musically pleasurable but also personal and funny. Despite falling into the “folksy girl” category, Alice manages to counteract the danger of being both very likeable and listenable (the usual tick boxes of the ‘New Boring’) by being memorable. The next stage in the Ostapjuk domination should come to light during the upcoming festival season and Alice will be playing at York Carnival on 16th June.
