Rock n Roll Witch is the latest single from SheBeat working with Scottish Indie producer Ian White (The Wendys/ Sons of the Descent).
Inspired by a jingle SheBeat created for the radio show of the same name hosted by magical music journalist Zöe Howe, Rock n Roll Witch is all about embracing music as magic, dancing around the kitchen while you make your potions.
SheBeat Jodie, a Liverbird living in Leith says: "This is witch pop at its finest. I am delighted to present a magical summer song, released in the week of the solstice and on my birthday, I hope you enjoy it's celestial vibes."
Zöe Howe is also the cover star for the single artwork. The photo of Zöe is a Michael White original given a colourful pop culture makeover.
Zöe, who presents a regular radio show on Soho Radio called Rock & Roll Witch, said: "It's such an honour. Everyone needs to check out SheBeat's fabulous new song, and so mote it be!"
The song production has psych pop influences. Ian said: "We needed something special for such a magical track. The solstice definitely added a mystical element to production."
Released first on artist-friendly streaming site Bandcamp, the track will be on all platforms from July 7.
SheBeat is a singer-songwriter from Liverpool living in Leith, Scotland. Storytelling alternative indie folk pop, with art pop and dream pop thrown in for good measure. Gentle vocals and acoustic melodies sit perfectly with indie producer Ian White. Influences from pop to psych, indie to americana, folk to country and easy listening. Fans say SheBeat sounds unique with flavours of Mazzy Star, Camera Obscura, PJ Harvey and Norah Jones.

As an independent artist I have seen first hand how difficult it can be to get promotional support for new music, so I'm taking matters into my own hands - and content making skills - and creating a menu for the accessible affordable PR platform Musosoup. The platform was recommended to me by a friend who is a music plugger who said she had heard good things about it vs other submit platforms.... say no more!
You may know I currently have a weekly radio show featuring music from the Scottish Music Scene - this radio show is also a playlist on Spotify, and I often promote the show on all my social accounts (Twitter, Instagram and Facebook) which regularly reach thousands of interested folks thanks to like-minded music loving people on the socials.
I also have a #nowplaying playlist & Facebook Group, and a SheBeat Meets Music Community Facebook group that I'll be using to promote music I think deserves a wider audience.
The Musosoup platform may not be perfect but as upload and wait for coverage sites go, it's been the best on offer I've found and I am truly hoping I will add something positive to the platform - all the while discovering ace new music makers.
