Release Date: Out Now
Remember when Speech Debelle won the Mercury Music Prize and then everyone thought she would change the world? Yeah, well luckily that kind of pressure didn’t stop her from creating and her latest single is the perfect evidence that she’s still letting those creative juices flow. ‘Strange Ways’ is a Tracy Chapman-esque piece with rippling guitars and the kind of rhythms that get a party starting by easing you in to the groove rather than forcing it upon you. There’s an almost rural and reminiscing feel to the music but then the lyrics are so much more urban and speak of, well, just a normal life. No airs or graces, just normal life presented in a way that is both comforting and infectious. There’s a great video as well that exists in the category called Youtube Scrapbook.
