So now the ‘Evergreen Seeds’ mixtape moves on to its 4th installment – I give you a seasoned seeder; James.
There is definitely something wintery about this song, I’m just not quite sure what that is yet. All I know is that I like it. It feels warm and comforting, like sitting by the fire or long journeys home. Simple vocals over an over-simplified acoustic riff are hardly a new formula, but to me this sounds fresh, it sounds real. Her voice is perfect, stark and forlorn but yet still dreamy and beautiful and the captivating live performances certainly seem to capture the audiences’ imagination if nothing else.
Lucy Rose – Middle of the Bed
After featuring on the title track of Bombay Bicycle Club’s second album ‘Flaws’, Lucy Rose seems to have developed a close affinity with the band; supporting them at acoustic shows as well as joining them on stage for the few tracks to which she lends her voice. Still very young and relatively undiscovered I think Lucy Rose could well be someone we hear much more from in the future, in the meantime put this on your iPod, close your eyes, listen and enjoy.
