Don't Wanna Think: Edith's New Release Ebbs & Flows Between Emotive Breakdowns & Powerful Crescendos

London-based songwriter Edith is a force to be reckoned with for 2019. Working with The Sonic Crew (Idris Elba/ Diplo/ Lethal Bizzle) has brought her distinctive brand of pop music to life. 

Born in Romania, before relocating to England, she began writing songs at school as an outlet for emotions she was unable to vocalise. 

Creating music was the only path from a young age, with Edith joining any musical assembly available at her school, while also learning guitar and piano. 

Her mother, who was also in a band, was a massive influence on her musical journey.

Edith wrote her first song at just eleven and hasn't looked back since.

"My parents bought me my first guitar when I was 12 and ever since that it has been my favourite thing to do. 

"I love writing songs, I love being able to express how I feel in melodies. For me, my EP is my diary as every song has a story." 


Inspired by contemporary pop artists such as LANY, Troye Sivan & Dua Lipa, The new single Don't Wanna Think is the first track from the EP, which is available now.

It's a body of work that showcases the young songwriters talent, diversity and distinctive contemporary pop style. 

The first single details a story of heartbreak, with a punchy, hook-driven pop production. 

The track ebbs and flows between emotive breakdowns and powerful crescendos with prowess, displaying a songwriting ability beyond the artists years. 

On the new single, Edith says:

"Don't Wanna Think is an incredibly significant song for me, it was written at just 16, when I was experiencing a lot of new feelings for the first time. 

"The message behind the song is that no matter how much we know someone isn't right for us, or someone hurt us our hearts still crave the feeling of them being with us, so we struggle to let go. 

"Sometimes we struggle to let go of the memories, the feeling and all because we get used to having someone there for us." 

"I never knew how I really felt about the relationship until I wrote this song, then it all made sense to me."

To mark twenty years of The Sopranos, three of the biggest characters from the seminal hit show will visit the Brighton Centre, for an up close and personal 'In Conversation' style show.

There Will Be No Intermission is Sussex-bound Amanda Palmer's first solo album in more than six years, as well as being her most powerful and personal collection to date, with songs that tackle the big questions: life, death, grief and how we make sense with it all.

Mystery Jets' new single, Screwdriver - taken from their forthcoming sixth studio album, A Billion Heartbeats -  is an uncompromising look at the rise of the rebranded alt-right in the UK, built around a powerfully positive message: "Fight them with love / then the world will be ours".

“I've learned a lot from making big mistakes,” says Sophie & The Giants' singer Sophie Scott. “When you're younger you think you know how the world works .. but you fucking don't." 

Ralph Pelleymounter's new album, Dead Debutante's Ball, was recorded over ten long days during Britain's hottest summer in decades, and so named “because it's a good title for someone releasing a solo album so late in their career.”

As part of Heritage Open Day on later this month, newly acquired photographs of David Bowie performing at Brighton Dome will go on display in the venue for the first time.

“This is an album for anyone who's ever turned to music in a time of crisis, whether personal or political. It's about the solace one can get from listening to music or playing music when everything else has gone wrong. It's about finding kernels of hope and renewal in dire situations.”

“I'm back like super gonorrhea!” announced Bianca Del Rio on her return to the Brighton Centre, this week. Just over a year since the American drag queen's last visit to the venue, reviewer Stephanie Keane made her own second outing to witness the 'clown in a gown' in all her sequined glory.

Jason Donovan is about to take his first steps in the role of producer, when the new production of Priscilla Queen of the Desert visits Theatre Royal Brighton, later this year.

It all started with two dubstep acts and a folk band, which perhaps explains the rainbow coalition of genres that spray across the album (Poor Girls/Broken Boys): punk, disco, metal, electronic pop – “all the main food groups” as The Vegan Leather bassist Matt puts it. 

Femme Fatale, the imagined meeting between activist Valerie Solanas and singer Nico, asks what might have happened if two female visionaries with very different methods had locked horns. 

Bestselling author Bill Bryson brings his combination of sharp-eyed humour and depth of knowledge to a celebration of his new book, The Body: A Guide for Occupants, at Charleston, East Sussex, this autumn.
