Becki Bardot - Summer of Love EP
The first great record of summer 2011 is here already. It’s called ‘Summer Of Love, which should give you an idea of where it’s coming from and the disc is Bardot by name and Bardot by nature – it’s deep, teasing and sinuously sexy without ever being gratuitous or in your face. It’s the kind of disc you’ll be playing to death before you even realise it.
The Bardot factor makes it come across like an experiment between Portishead and The Orb – aching, romantic and longing on one hand and spikily electronic on the other. Lead vocalist Fiona Lynch has all of Beth Gibbons’ throaty vocal affectations and her backing band have the kind of sonic ambition that makes you have faith in dance music all over again.Jonathan Muirhead – Is this Music Magazine 15.4.2011
