Fiona Bevan‘s debut album, Talk to Strangers, releases in the UK on 28 April via Navigator Records and is sure to appeal to fans of artists as diverse as Björk, Joanna Newsom and Lianne La Havas. “The Machine” is the record’s first single. “‘The Machine’ came from being angry and frustrated about the state of the world and from my feelings of powerlessness to do anything about it,” Bevan says. “Within the song, there’s a shift – that’s about breaking out and finding how you can have power in your own life, in everything you do.”
