Fourth album by Icelandic singer / songwriter Emiliana Torrini. Torrini has collaborated with many big names such as Kylie Minogue (she co-wrote the song 'Slow') and Paul Oakenfield, and performed 'Gollem's Song' in Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers, and is an occasional member of Icelandic group GusGus. 'Tookah' is available on CD and vinyl from Rough Trade.
8/10 Jack Customer review, 4th February 2018
This is a very pleasant, gentle album. It is somewhat different than her previous albums. It seems to be largely acoustic, with some hints of electronic instrumentation mixed in the background. Not that other albums didn't have this sound, but there was usually more electronica. Emiliana's voice is unmistakable, as is her lyrics. In some ways some of these songs reminds me of Lisa Hannigan. I enjoy listening to all the songs, but "Speed of Dark" is my favourite: a superb song that deserves your attention.
