Lucky Soul – My Brittle Heart/Give Me Love (Ruffa Lane Records)

We played one track from Lucky Soul’s double A side on the CMU Radio show, and to be honest, my decision to play it was based entirely on the fact that the band are based in Greenwich, and we love Greenwich, because it’s not far from CMU’s Docklands office, plus, it’s got an observatory and a lovely big ship. So it was pleasant to discover that I actually liked the songs in addition to the group’s location. Both tracks engage with the sort of
melodic pop that seems to hark back to a different era, with its fluid structure and clear, cut glass vocals. I like ‘Give Me Love’ best, highly reminiscent as it is of the sound of a sixties girl trio, an obvious comparison, but a pertinent one. Either way, this is charming, catchy stuff, worth checking out, and not just because of the group’s proximity to the Cutty Sark, either. CM (CMU)
