Continuing our current agenda of publishing the new music that other blogs delivered to you a day or so ago (full explanation of why on this link), here’s the second song from Cloves aka Kaity Dunstan to find its way online; unless of course you count the You Tube clips from her TV talent show past.
Here are the 3 essential things that you need to know about this song:
1. It’s a beauty. Really that’s the only thing you need to know.
2. It’s a sparse sounding torch song steeped in the pop classicism of the past. There’s a simmering understated passion to this one that finds us thinking of Lana Del Rey, Cowboy Junkies and Mazzy Star. Maybe a tiny bit of Amy Winehouse as well? It’s all rather gorgeous for sure.
3. The Soundcloud player tells us that Don’t You Wait was an i-D website premiere. Does anybody actually care about that fact? We certainly don’t. It could have been premiered on a cutest cat website for all we care. In fact that would have been far more interesting, just for the ‘WTF’ reaction from industry and blogger types. Not only would you have been able to listen to some quality music, but see some kitten pictures at the same time. That’s how to spend a productive day – right?
