Skye – Back To Now

Skye’s voice is, it must be said, part of the problem. Undeniably sweet and styled, it lacks texture and contrast and simply can’t sell some of the more strident material here. Nowhere, a darkly possessive track, falls flat as stabbing strings do their best to bring the sinister urgency which is almost entirely absent from the vocals. This lack of grit is underlined in Little Bit Lost, a glam stomp reminiscent of Goldfrapp which merely leaves you thinking how much better Alison would have delivered it. 

My review at MusicOMH, who have added a half star so as to make it nicer. Possibly.
