Originally hailing from Ashbourne, Derbyshire, Paris Paloma channels the experience of womanhood into her songwriting, speaking to the female experience, grief, love, death, and power. Her songwriting reads like poetry, drawing inspiration from figures throughout mythology, art history and the Romantics. Ranging from the tender and heartbreaking to the sublimely aggressive and vengeful. Her ethereal sound takes influences from dark pop, folk, and indie genres; creating a magical discography that evokes something primal and innately feminine.

The Surrey-based singer-songwriter recently released her single, “labour.” A wild, stirring yet self-contained anthem, “labour” tells the story of a woman railing against the inequity of labour within heteronormative relationships. With her usual poetic lyricism and beautiful approach to melody, Paris manages to express a familiar feminine rage through this folky, dark pop, offering.

The viral single has received a rapturous response from fans, with previews of the song on TikTok garnering hundreds of thousands of views. The attention spurs from the powerful message behind the track; “‘labour’ takes us inside a relationship where the speaker’s self-worth is once again reduced, like many people who find themselves in draining relationships with undeserving people. Taking on all the emotional labour – because we accept the love we think we deserve. But it is a breaking point… it is the first time the speaker acknowledges the toxicity of these dynamics, and the song is about the escape from that relationship,” Paloma exclaims.
