"With huge 'don't kill Bambi' eyes and Beat-Girl insouciance issuing from Betty Page lips, Paloma Faith is a born performer" ID
"I can be wilder than the wind 190 miles an hour, I'm in a whole other dimension, dancing doubles on the floor, You think I'm crazy, a little bit hazy But I'm stone cold sober" Paloma Faith

It is this extraordinary voice and persona that you can hear for the first time when her debut single "Stone Cold Sober" is rush released by Epic on June 15.
