Robyn Sherwell - Love Somebody


London based Robyn Sherwell comes to my attention with the swoonsome beauty "Love Somebody", a track which sounds like the music I was brought up listening to in the early 90's (and is now very much enjoying a renaissance), smooth, mellow pop with a soulful vocal and irresistible hook.

"Love Somebody" is sparse beats and glacial guitars which radiate a beautiful atmosphere in which Robyn's repeated call and response questioning of "can you ever love somebody..." breaks hearts. It recalls the soft, smouldering beauty of Lisa Stansfield at her finest and if it were released back then, it'd be hitting the highs of the charts, now of course we know things have changed unless you are on X Factor protege or worse Ed Sheeran...

"Love Somebody is released 7th September via Birdland Records with a release show taking place on the 11th at London's Islington - details.
