Bristol-based Stevie Parker may have had a quiet start to life growing up in a quaint country town in Somerset. However, over the last year, she has shone out as the one to watch. Having only released her debut single, The Cure, last June, and her debut EP, ‘Blue’, in November, Stevie quickly introduced her ambient, shimmering twist on electro-pop to the world. She also began recording her first album, due later this year, with Grammy award winning producer Jimmy Hogarth, famed for working with Amy Winehouse, Sia, James Bay, and Maverick Sabre to name just a few.

Her latest single, ‘Without You’, and the accompanying video, continue to build on her ambient-pop sound and the conflicts of love and loss. The song speaks of lost love and the empowerment of independence, while the video comments on the isolation felt after a breakup, showing Stevie standing alone at car boots, on busy streets, and on top of apartment buildings. At each location, the camera zooms slowly towards her, but cuts before we get too close, making the viewer feel like an ex trying to win their way back, however, with each cut, it forces us to start at the beginning again as she insists, “I’m doing alright without you”.

Following the release of ‘Without You’, Stevie took some time out to tell Notion about some of her influences and a few of her favourite things. Take a look below:
