Label: Columbia Records Release date: 15/11/10 Link: Offical Site Nothing is as exciting as finding a lovely stand alone track from a great performer. A singular piece of work that can be repeatedly played and still gain the same, if not better, reaction each time. I think this can be found in the new release from American singer Lissie. ‘Everywhere I go’ is the next single from her debut album, the critically acclaimed Catching a Tiger. The album is a wondrous find in itself, but that’s for another time. The focus here lies with, what has been described as, the stand out track from the album, even gaining an excellent live duet from Ellie Goulding. Starting slow and gentle, the song builds with passion and intensity through the three minutes. It has a vintage feel to it, in both vocal quality and instrumentals, making it feel familiar yet new; much like finding an old jumper in the back of your wardrobe. As she states herself ‘so much of my process is instinct and it’s natural...Everything I do I want to feel natural’, and she has certainly succeeded here. Powerful lyrics combine with heavenly vocals to create something that feels untouched, free from marketing and mass production. It has the sincerity that many other similar performers lack, with the ability to create something that is completely heartfelt, whilst still being a well crafted song for the radio; Lissie certainly knows how to write songs that highlight the astonishing vocal talent that she possesses. The ending, complete with passionate cries, leaves you wanting more of the same. Perfect as the singular work of art that desires your return. The only problem is that, with the sudden surge of female artists, will this single be able to get by on pure talent alone, or will it need the backing of a mass marketing campaign to get it past the likes of Laura Marling and Ellie Goulding?
