This is excellent – and not in my usual line of musical vision. Tuneful, haunting, melodic, catchy and reminiscent in the best possible way of what I loved in the early ’80’s. Jenn Vix, who has previously been recognized by Rolling Stone, releases this wonderful new single, aided and abetted by ex-Cure drummer Andy Anderson and guitarist Mark Montalto, to deliver a memorable track that I can’t get enough of. Her voice is striking; warm, enveloping and emotional. And the intesting nuance is in the production, where it doesn’t sound “over-retro” and too much like one may think, keeping the human touch in the performance. While she has a stellar track record of releases behind her, Ms. Vix certainly has a very bright 2015 ahead, indicated by this fine song.
