Anna Calvi

Hunted (Domino)

By • Apr 12th, 2020 • Category: Album review

This is friendly music, with a true heart and spirit of its own.

These songs have obviously been brewed long in the mind before being committed to tape. Every note is precisely placed and every syllable so precisely enunciated so as to ensure that maximum emotional impact is delivered.

The use of metaphor in songs such as ‘Swimming Pool’ and ‘Wish’ is well balanced by warmth and empathy in other tracks such as ‘Away’ and ‘Indies Or Paradise’.

This means that the album, short though it is (barely 30 minutes) has a real flow and sweep to it that really gets you going and makes you feel as though Calvi is speaking to you and about your life.
