Soulful singer-songwriter, Alice Limoges, is debuting a new song and music video for her latest release, “Hungry for a Vice.”
The single is her first newly released track since her 2016 LP “The Space Between”. Limoges’s new video is the product of her collaboration with Jordan Tetewsky, with executive producer Rob Cleaveland and music production by Jon Jetter, of Right Angle Recording.
The young talent illustrates an inner battle, as she struggles with personal desires and self-control. Her temptations and fears are brought to life by disturbing strangers in a hazey bar. She sings about independence and isolation, boasting she’s “well-versed in the art of self-sabotage.”
Alice wanders alone around the club, belting a melancholy tune. Her voice is paired with acoustic guitar, trumpet and snare, as she navigates among the freakshow crowd. The jazz band behind her and costuming give the video an old-time carnivalesque aura.
“I ended a long term relationship with a guy who was really bad for me and brought me down and now when I play it, I think about him and filling that nasty void in my life.” -Alice Limoges
Originally from Maine, Alice Limoges has built a following in New York and throughout the Northeast over the past couple years. The singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist has performed at festivals and venues including The Campfire Festival, Columbia University, Bard College, The Bowery Electric and The Cutting Room (where “Hungry for a Vice” was filmed).
The Bangor Daily News said Limoges’s sound on the self-produced “Space Between Us” (2016) was “something akin to a softer-edged Fiona Apple, or a harder-edged Sarah McLachlan — awfully, awfully pretty, but with a flair for the dramatic that creeps in on nearly every track.”
The singer’s sound combines a variety of instrumental arrangements. Working with Jon Jetter to produce her new record, her style has been described as “Indie Jazz Rock” and is the result of her fuzing together a broad taste of artistic influences.
