This is fucking great:
Good song, but I don't like her voice much at all.
I can forgive the vocals when the song's a banger. Although surely Dua could have scissored for this.
Her voice doesn't bother me on this like it did on the slow stuff.
Good on her for spinning off her drippy Love Island balladry into a much more worthy hit. Though I am sure she still has more drippy balladry in her.
Yeah I don’t hate the vocals on this one. Brilliant song, hopefully it proper takes off.
Huh. Well this is entirely unexpected. I hope she has more of this in her.
This gets advertised a lot on Spotify. It’s definitely got a hook. If it was the 90s there’d also be a killer remix on the loose.
Enunciation, please. "I'm gonna be...CASTLES...frubble-ubble-ubble-love". What?
(NB - this is decent)
She's just a bellow or six away from Florence Welch.
my first thought was florence too, if a bit more restrained. i don't mind this on first listen. i like the sentiment and the fromtherubbleofyourlove bit and the plinky piano during the last chorus.
This is fantastic. It has been stuck in my head for days.
#48 on Spotify now, new peak.
Scratch that, now up to #37. Great stuff.
#26 in actual singles chart too. Would be great to see this hit at least the top 20.
Going by her past singles I am surprised they haven't already stuck out a remix - not that I would necessarily hold my breath on any such mix being killer.
The new track they are pushing on New Music Friday is back to boring form unfortunately.
Why are they pushing something now? Shouldn't they hold it back a month or so, or has this Love Island success got in the way of a wider campaign?
The album is out this week so it makes sense she would have a song on NMF, but this song is on there as a single with its own cover too. Odd.
I suppose campaigns are very different now. I guess I just find it odd in as much as Castles is very much still building.
the ameraal forecast says: hit.
i reserve the right to hate it soon however.
I’d say it’s mainly for new music Friday with the album. Castles is really taking off and I’d say they are thrilled to have another hit so will push it for the next month or so at least.
The Guardian absolutely SLAMMED her album: https://www.theguardian.com/music/2019/jul/19/freya-ridings-review-good-soldier-records
I see they picked up on her shoddy enunciation.
The Guardian however, to borrow a phrase from a younger generation "don't know dick about shit".
A bit messy in spots but I'll work with it.
