Morcheeba's Skye Shares New track "Featherlight"
Thu, 24 Jan 2013 15:52:01
Morcheeba member Skye will release her third studio effort Back to Now and she will hit the road on a mini tour. She also shared the lead single "Featherlight," which boasts electro hooks and pop slendor.
Back to Now sees Skye on assured form in the follow up to 2009's Keeping Secrets. The album began life in similar fashion to her two previous releases, in partnership with her longtime collaborator and husband Steve Gordon.
However, in contrast to Keeping Secrets and Skye's solo debut Mind How You Go, guitar and piano were laid to one side and tracks instead evolved from the early barebones of beats and loops.
However, Back to Now is by no means an exclusively synth propelled album, with strings employed to distinctive effect on "Bright Light" and the possessive plea of "Nowhere." Yet in all cases, it is the character and range of Skye's vocals which underpins Back to Now.
