This review is criminally late, sorry Julia, if you happen to be reading this. For some reason this keeps coming up on my computer as ‘Sexy Love’ by Ne-yo, so sorry for that as well Julia, it’s clearly not, is it?
A single from her current album, this is a cut above the current female chanteuse notion, nestling somewhere between Ellie Goulding and Kathryn Williams, a good strumming tune and a slightly lispy, wispy vocal.
There are portents of doom and secret love, old fashioned “letters”, sorry WTF, I think someone did mention them to me once… Nice guitar effects solo, a trad. arr. song updated, again in a good way, cynical but effective, strangely a bit Nick Cave, from some era or other.
