Thoughts please

I've often expressed my enthusiasm for artists who have written stuff in English when that is not their first language. We assume that our neighbours in Europe will bend over backwards to please out pop industry by writing in our language.

This is not one of the great examples.

Where familiar pop cliches are strung together to make a lyric, particularly when the music is not very special either, it doesn't matter what your first language is, the result is disappointing.

I'd love to know they are capable of writing incisive, emotional lyrics in French or Flemish. Ideas are all that really matter

It's ok. The overall feel is a bit like cowboy Morricone stuff, though not as good. Derivative rather than pioneering. The slow bit kills the song as a dance number.

This track would sit well though on the compilation album of winsome women singers we seem to have been listening to for the past few days. ;-)

Caught some new bands last night. Projector. Strange Cages. That's the name check. The band we all liked best was Gaygirl - coincidentally, also fronted by a woman.

It's a bit of a departure from the duo's work judging by looking through YouTube as far back as 2011. The Folky stuff was decent but I do like this more full production.

I'm liking that PC saw a real band with guitars and everything.

Haha. All three bands were cracking, and very much wearing their parents'/grandparents' record collections on their sleeves ;-)

This is very musical, and I'd enjoy it if it popped up on the radio. I really like the gauzy last acapella dropout. The vocals need a bit of compression or just plain boosting to push them out front a bit more. On verses the harmony doubling and reverb are too much and dissipate the impact and emotional connection I think, much as this sounds great on other sections. Having a bit more singular and personal voice on the verses would give this more hook, IMO.
