Why does every female singer under the age of 30 sound like either Joanna Newsom or one of the girls from Cocorosie? Ok not all of them but a lot of them.

8/10 Clinton Staff review, 25 September 2009
Why does every female singer under the age of 30 sound like either Joanna Newsom or one of the girls from Cocorosie? Ok not all of them but a lot of them. It's so affected, especially when done by people who are UK residents. Here comes another albeit not the worst or most obvious example I've heard. Its a CD by Strike the Colours who on first glance seem to be one of those pleasant if slightly earnest Scottish bands whose folky songs are slathered in string arrangements. My Latest Novel springs immediately to mind. The album called 'Seven Roads' is lovingly produced with plenty of space between the instruments, the vocals also recall the lady from The Sundays (ask an old timer). Its a nice album with nods towards Adrian Crowley, Nick Cave and Neko Case. Probably lacking a little in variety or standout songs and a little polished in places but if you like your music Scottish, earthy and folky you could do a lot worse than this. On Dead Light Records.
