Singer-songwriter Louisa Osborn recently made her debut as Tallsaint with the single ‘I’m A Woman (After All)’. Whereas her previous projects have been mainly guitar-based, this sees her working with electronic sounds, a shift that she seems to have jumped into like a natural.

“It’s basically a dance track”, she says. “I’ve never worked with those sorts of textures and sounds before. I had a poem that I’d been working on around the same time that became the lyrics. Mainly written for a cathartic release, it started out about being fed up of people second-guessing me, not just in music and situations related, but also in domestic environments. If I looked a certain way, perhaps sans make-up, I was getting confused when people would assume the way I was feeling”.

Her vocal delivery belies the anger in the lyrics, and the juxtaposition of the two provide a strong pull into her world. She makes her live debut at Live At Leeds this Friday. In the meantime, listen to ‘I’m A Woman (After All)’ here:
