Carla J Easton (feat. Honeyblood)

Weirdo (Olive Grove)

By • Aug 21st, 2020 • Category: Single review

The title track from her forthcoming album, ‘Weirdo’ yet again takes Scottish artist Carla J Easton to new levels of storming bangerdom (not actually a word, but…).

Aided by interspersed vocals from the also hugely talented Stina out of Honeyblood, this just blows everything else away in a bonfire of analogue synth and dramatic instrumental backdrop…

This Weirdo girlgang with attitude is superbly produced, building up to epic heights as it destroys the airwaves, along with a great wobbly keyboard middle eight…

It is truly the missing link between homegrown indiepop, the processed R&B of artists like Charlii XCX and Janelle Monae, along with some of the best 60s girlgroup tropes…

Clocking in at a bit over 3 minutes, this is probably Carla’s best work yet (though BM may have said that about the last single…) – she just goes from strength to strength…

(catches breath)

Phew, what a monster…
