"I can walk into those rooms full of established male musicians and not apologise for being there. Fuck that!” At 24 years of age, Scottish newcomer Brooke Combe is ready to call time on the accepted order of things, interrupting indie with an unapologetic attitude and a formidable roster of songs. A collection she has honed through a year of relentless gigging, each track on her forthcoming mixtape has its heart in a long lineage of funk and soul, a retro sound that has earned her endorsement from the likes of the BBC, Rolling Stone UK, The Skinny and NME. It's a style that could easily come across as mere pastiche, but from the very first note of her rich vocal, there is no doubt that Brooke is carving her own path.
