Taken from Juliet Turner s new album Burn The Black Suit (see separate review), this single is destined for higher things, like a high chart placing, for example? Jingly and pleasing, it is reminiscent of one of those summer-hit singles that everyone ends up humming. Catchy and convincing, it is a feel-good melee of swirling guitars and hummable vocals. Falling is the second track but this is a more mellow affair. Stripped down to its bare minimum with the accompaniment of a guitar and an obviously less commercial feel to it, it gives a real insight into Juliet s songwriting and is more representative of the general feel of songs on the new album. Her strong, accented voice sits happily on the acoustic guitar and it is a plaintive and passionate exploration of emotional security. Track three brings us back to the title song, this time in its instrumental mix format - so if you feel like learning the words (believe me, you won t be able to stop yourself!) then put this on full pelt and let your lungs rip!
