Last time we encountered Laura J Martin, she was brandishing a flute. The first few minutes of this eerie sing-song ballad are flute free and sound like something from a Tim Burton film. She has a distinctive helium squeak which is not going to be to everyone's taste; the music is some kind of warped take on the 'Sugar Plum Fairy' - a dark Elfman waltz. Not at all bad until the flute starts to take centre stage. It flutters and flitters through the second half of the tune, like an irritating moth. The B side is a remix of previous single 'Spy' which I recognise immediately which is good news. It's a David Arnold, UNKLE, Mo-Wax style soundtracky thing, with almost an Acid Jazz feel. The drums are amazing and it's a great tune but if someone doesn't do it first, I'm going to go and stick that flute where the sun don't shine.
