PopMatters Premieres She's Got It EP
The opening "November Skin" serves as an excellent example of this, with Deale's vocals recalling the classic era of synthesizer pop (think: Berlin), the track tears down assumptions about the superficial. "The Last Hour" is anchored by lovely, plaintive keyboard figures and what may be Deale's most convincing performance among the pieces here. Then again, the cinematic flourishes of "Sad Eyes" or the haunting passages of the closing "Hometown Glory" are equally impressive. Deale and Spicer ask listeners to pause, listen and reflect; this isn't music for listeners in a race to consume but, instead, is there for those who choose to get beneath the surface and fully absorb the material.
