THE BLACKHEART ORCHESTRA – SINGLE REVIEW

The Blackheart Orchestra – Keep The Light In 
The Blackheart Orchestra - Keep The Light In


Release Date: 24th June 2016

The wonderfully named Mancunian duo, the Blackheart Orchestra (sounds piratey doesn’t it?), are ready to unleash their debut single on the world and what a peach it was. Chrissy Mostyn and Rick Pilkington, for they are The Blackheart Orchestra, are releasing ‘Keep The Light In’ and you need to listen up and pay attention if you’re a fan of slightly gothy dance with a hint of the dramatic. Taking the more muted moments of Florence + The Machine, a more accessible Portishead and Ellie Goulding’s angrier little sister and mixing it in a sparse little electro sound-lab has created something particularly enthralling. The beats gently lurch forwards while the electric melodies pulse and sparkle in the shadows allowing Mostyn’s voice to take centre stage in all its breathy elegance. Late night loveliness then from the duo with the most apt of names.
