It's an exquisite offering from the London artist...

Rising London songwriter FAYYE has shared her new single 'Devil's Game'.

The release is part of an incoming four track EP, a sign of her blossoming aesthetic ambitions.

A classically trained pianist and vocalist, she honed her material at legendary London open mic nights, such as Harrisons and Sessions 58.

Using her material - and these experiences - as a salve for anxiety, FAYYE has found that creating music in such an open, honest fashion has had a profound impact on her life.

New single 'Devil's Game' echoes this process, the result of recording sessions at an intimate space in Stoke Newington.

There's a folk edge to it - we can hear elements of Sandy Denny or Laura Marling, even - while the melodies reflect aspects of FAYYE's Greek heritage.

Pointed and poignant, the surging pop undertones put us in mind of Bat For Lashes, or perhaps London Grammar.

A song about casting fortune to the wind, grappling with desire, ambitious, and the invisible barriers around you, 'Devil's Game' is a real triumph.
