The new single from Rebecca Downes, taken from the forthcoming album More Sinner Than Saint, does everything you need a single to do. It rocks from start to finish with an almost live energy that is, quite simply, infectious. It engages the listener with a narrative we all have experience of. It gets you singing along with the chorus after the first one. And above all else, it shows a singer and a band at the top of her game.
Furthermore, the sound sets a new, harder direction. Blues fans don't despair, the blues undertone is still there, and remains the quiet backbone of the song. But it is rocked up, blues-rock on steroids if you will, with the guitars, musical instrument speaking, very much to the fore.
However, the real star is of course Rebecca Downes and her voice simply gets better and better as time passes. Somehow she pulls off the trick of making her voice sound effortless but with full on passion and energy all at the same time.
All I have to say is, BUY THIS SINGLE NOW (direct, Amazon, iTunes, your fave record shop, I don't care, just go buy it!) and bring on the new album!
