Sibille Attar

Five years ago, Sibille Attar was a major label-signed act with a promising career ahead of her. It’s not an experience she remembers fondly.

“I had a rough patch, confidence-wise, after the last album for some reason”, she tells The Line Of Best Fit. “Maybe because I was working with shitholes – that could be part of it. I was super surprised about how uninterested some people in the business seemed in whatever I actually could do with music”.

She goes on: “They seemed more interested in whether I looked pretty in photos, the way they wanted me to, or not, and that attitude took me completely off-guard”.

Five years later, she’s signed to indie label PNKSLM and finally back with some new music. And it’s great to hear from her once again; in her time away she’s lost nothing of what made her so intriguing before.

New EP ‘Paloma’s Hand’ is due out on 27 Apr. The first single to be released from it, ‘Run’, is filled with a dark atmosphere. Attar’s deft production leaves the track feeling tense, without allowing it to become too claustrophobic.
