It’s back to basics for folktronic songstress Beth Orton.
The sound on her new album can be best described as a change in style in favour of a more sparse and minimalist sound. Orton’s sixth Album is a typically intense affair that makes great use of her vocal prowess whilst at the same time paring back her wispy sound.
Single “Something More Beautiful” is a great track as is ‘In candles’ and closing number ‘mystery’. It’s a lovely album that dispenses with the English singer songwriter’s normal beats and instead delivers a simpler more traditionally folksy affair. It works and then some . Have yourself a listen.
