We’ve always loved a lady that likes her food and so there was a fattening inevitability that Gentleman, the first single to be taken from Isobel Anderson’s forthcoming album In My Garden was going to find admiration in these parts. After all it’s not often you hear the line “load up my scone with some cream”, alongside references to the finest makers of hampers Fortnum & Mason in a song.
So grab a cup of tea, settle down and press play on this lyrically engaging and beautifully melodic tune, where gentle acoustic strums and a lonely violin accompany Isobel’s warm coos about someone that looks like a film star, plays chess at the weekend and has school friends who work in the city.
If you fancy yourself as a bit of a refined man Isobel has recently been selling a limited edition Gentleman download seedcard with an unreleased B-side in a stylish tobacco tin. “Good enough for any gentleman dandy about town. You can even grow your own bouquet of flowers by placing the download card in some soil, ready to woo any eligible damsels,” she states on her Facebook. Unfortunately this has now sold out, but you can buy this song from Isobel’s Bandcamp right now.
