Arthur Rimbaud’s famous quote still holds true in 2022: no one’s serious at seventeen. Born in Dallas, Texas, better known for country music, Gayle isn’t quite what you’d expect. She chose pop music and has even become America’s new pop ambassador. She’s so young she makes Billie Eilish and Charlie XCX seem like old hands. Last year, her single ABCDEFU propelled her to the top of the charts – and deep into our hearts. Since then, she’s released her first EP entitled A Study of the Human Experience Volume One. Six songs that are just like her, teeming with youthful energising freshness, at once charming and innocent, fearless and reckless. We certainly hope Gayle stays “not serious” even when she finally turns eighteen.
