Reliably informed

With a gentle rhythm section driving the song from the offset, the punches of guitars and syncopated drum grooves act as the first piece of interest on this new track from Charlotte Forman.

When the vocals slide in, there is a real presence held by the Durham-based singer. A full bodied vocal performance eases over the jaunty swing of the track, carrying a relaxed candour throughout which matches the charisma and swagger of the instrumental beautifully. A trumpet strolls in as a welcome addition to the number, and you are left wondering what stopped the artist committing to a fully indulgent brass section, as the track lends itself perfectly to that sunshine-fuelled nostalgia of love, innocence and dance.
