Oooh the new song had somehow passed me by. I like it! Not in a omg this is a massive jam way, more in this is promising for the direction of the new album way.
Saw her 4 times on the last tour and really really enjoyed it each time, I think the songs from that self-titled came across much better live (but I did like the album a lot as well), and I’m mad for when artists put a lot of effort into the choreography and staging of live shows and it works well. She played in Manchester Cathedral I think like the day before the album came out, and it was just such an amazing gig to watch so I kind of got this expectation that the album was this amazing once in a generation masterpiece and it ended up not being that so I was little bit disappointed with it, but still good (although I’ve not listened to it in a while and I still listen to Strange Mercy and Actress every so often).
Probably going to try to catch her live on this next tour, hoping she’ll bring back the band getting out the violin and clarinet and flute for The Strangers, seeing her perform that years ago when I had no idea who she was was what got me into her, amazing stuff (Latitude festival I think it was).
