With her debut EP release on the horizon, Manchester-based singer-songwriter Lusaint returns with her irresistible new single ‘Sweet Tooth’, out 2nd February on new indie imprint Heavenly Fire.

Opening with a cool guitar strut before breaking into a commanding groove, Sweet Tooth is an upbeat, addictive new tune from Lusaint. Backed by slinky piano chords, funk bass, the Manchester songstress gives a stunning vocal performance as she struggles to resist the forbidden fruit of a relationship. “I hate it ‘cos I love you / addicted to the taste”, she sings on a bittersweet chorus. 

Speaking on the single, Lusaint notes, “Sweet Tooth is about being obsessed/ addicted to someone/ something but trying to break the habit, of this force that keeps pulling you back

The track follows previous singles ‘Dream Life’‘Fool For You’, and the powerful debut single ‘Dark Horse’, which received support from BBC Introducing Manchester and Victoria Jane, Future Pop, Future Artists and Dean & Vicky on BBC Radio 1 amongst other tastemakers.

Such success has led to collaborations with glamorous brands including Chanel, Dior, Alighieri Jewellery; and a London Fashion Week 2023 appearance, and in the press she has been championed by publications such as Wonderland Magazine and About Time, while DSP playlist support has included Spotify’s NMF UK, Apple Music’s New In Pop, Deezer’s Breaking UK, Amazon Music’s Finely Tuned and TikTok’s ‘New Music’.
