Eliza Shaddad #3 - When We


A couple of weeks back I posted an exquisite live version of a new Sophie Jamieson track taken from from a Sofar Sounds release, now comes another track from thr same compilation album (which is available now via iTunes), this time from the sublime Eliza Shaddad.

Within thirty seconds of "When We" you're transported firmly into the track with a seamless blend of Eliza's haunting, world-weary tones and ringing electric guitar circles. It all seems deceptively simple because Eliza has perfected this knack of making a beautiful song and singing it beautifully but there's a masterful art to the craft on display here, elegance and clarity delivered with a timeless warmth and devastating tone. It's one you'll want to listen to over and over.
