BBC introducing artist Candythief, aka anglo-euro songwriter Diana de Cabarrus, first emerged in association with Fence records. Drawing on alternative, acoustic, psych pop, indie influences with a touch of chanson, the songs are melody-driven, occasionally theatrical, hopping between styles, and coloured by unusual song-structures. She grew up bumping along pot-holed tracks in Europe's only geographically-accurate desert, listening to a random and specific sub-set of psychadelia, Mozart & Americana, and some odd things in between.
