Described as Dua Lipa meets Zara Larsson, 18-year old Brighton beauty Libby Whitehouse is set to release her new single Cut It Off, featuring stunning vocals, perfect for radio hooks and a remix to kill the dancefloor. Libby describes Cut It Off as “Looking back on a situation that once really hurt you and mocking it, or knowing what you need to do if that situation happens again…which is to cut it off and know your worth. I’m all about girl power and the message that girls shouldn’t take shit from anyone!”
Though only 17, Libby released three singles in 2017, ‘Hands on Me’, ‘Recipe’ and ‘What I Want’, gaining her the attention of The Great Escape, I Luv Live, and fashion brand Pretty Little Thing. Cut It Off will be followed by a much anticipated EP, due for release in September 2018.
