    finally some RHYTHM with her third single



    on first listen I like it, although the Paralyzed b-side Back in 84 feels like the stronger uptempo to me (and reminds me quite a bit of the excellent Hypnotized :disco:)

    I like it. It's actually very Nerina Pallot-esque

    It is very like the Back In 84 vibe, which I liked. I like this too. It’s nice to see her not chasing hits and releasing music more aligned to the stuff she listens to herself.

    Is she blessing us with an albam, or just throwing singles around willy and nilly for a bit?

    There’s been chat of D6 for a while. I think an album is coming, probably closer to Christmas or before the tour next year?

    I HATE this.

    But I can't get enough of "Paralyzed" as an old school Delta screechalong. The sheer DRAMA of it!

    obsessed with Solid Gold right now, as well as Back in 84. she sounds great on these uptempos with real instruments and proper hooks.

    Surprised that anyone could sing along to Paralyzed though :eyes: I can't even remember how it goes or detect a tune

    I'm going to give Solid Gold another spin just because of you though Jark

    in very DELTA fashion, she has followed up her string of 3 singles with... a Christmas album. :eyes:



    the title track is an original and it's pretty good! the final track is an Olivia duet also.

    Oh Christ... erm, I don't really need this right now but I'll check back in when I'm in the mood! Little Drummer Boy being so high on the tracklist is a good sign though!

    Is she not bothering with a proper album?

    There’s something very ominous about the title Only Santa Knows

    exclusive lyrics

    only Santa knows when you'll
    be able to play my new album
    (louder and louder)
    bet you thought that was snow
    on the cover, but it's just talcum
    (powder, powder)
