When the prelude to a track has you expressing expletives, you know that you’re in for a hell of a track. As a massive fan of Bjork, Massive Attack and Lydia Lunch it was only natural that I’d fall so quickly for Martina Topley-Bird’s latest single. Solitude was released ahead of her upcoming 4-track EP ‘MTB Continued’. I’d struggle to tire of Martina’s sound, so it’s safe to say I’m more than excited for the release to drop.
I’m not even ashamed to say that even before the track reached its mid-way point I’d shed a tear after drinking the fragile ambience of her evocative vocal offerings. The fluid mastering over this track sets as the perfect platform for Martina to lay down her overwhelmingly sensual yet strong vocals down. To top it all off, the lyricism is absolutely flawless. ‘Feed me starvation’, I’m pretty sure most poets out there would struggle to come up with a more poignant soundbite.
You can check out Martina’s latest single Solitude which was released June 15th, 2018 by heading over to her official website.
