Single Review

Could you imagine Lily Allen and Lady Sovereign meeting the Bjork of eight years ago, on Celebrity Love Island and bursting into song after musing over the vagaries attached to first dates? Kate flits ruggedly between an almost hip-hop vocal gait and a bland anti-folk one. The songs builds, as Kate tears into fading romantic flame with cutting jibes that would make Simon Cowell seem like a counsellor;

You said I must eat so many lemons, cos I am so bitter.

I said I'd rather be with your friends mate, cos they are much fitter.

A lobbing piano-led, spring-time backing plain allows this dark humoured Londoner to stomp over it with cocky prowess. The old school approach of

when I've got something to say; I'll just say it, love!
is shamelessly deployed and it doesn't make bad listening at all.
