I’m pretty sure that no one would ever come to expect a track titled “I Think You’re an Ass” to kick off with a Neo-Soul Jazz prelude. Yet up and coming recording artist Fake Tapes is apparently full of mesmerising surprises. Clearly, she doesn’t hold much restraint when it comes to saying what’s on her mind through her lyrics and track title choices and that’s just one of the reasons why her approach is so refreshing. There’s no skirting around the images and hiding behind flowery metaphors. She’s straight to the point with her stylish approach to sound. Yet, that isn’t what you’ll remember he latest single for. You’re much more likely to look back on I Think You’re an Ass and reflect on the soulful catharsis of the jazzy notes, the rich instrumental harmony and the progressive nature of the rhythmically hypnotic down-tempo single.
