“Is this the new Jessie Ware single?” was the usual reaction to Laura Welsh’s rather excellent single Unravel. The chances are that newbie Cold Front will get similar comparisons. The mellow grooves are serpentine smooth, the beats subtle, spacious and of the moment and Laura’s voice sounds like she could knock this stuff out without even trying. So OK it’s not taking music in any new direction but this track is so slick that we guarantee natural underwear removal of any lady / man you’re interested in by the end of its 3 minutes 22 seconds once they’ve heard it. It’s certainly a long way from her early Laura and the Tears days.
If you want to see Laura live but are concerned about possible bra and knicker seduction, take your chastity belt to London’s Africa Centre in Covent Garden on the 15th July, the same day that Cold Front is released.
