Reliably informed

Hekla Goodman’s Last Call is an unusually brilliant thing; pure pop music that takes its influence from fairly disparate sources. Hekla’s vocal performance is indebted to country pop, Shania Twain was an immediate point of reference on listening.

The heartfelt vocal performance is backed by fairly modern production qualities, as minimal, pulsating rhythms are Jackson Pollock’d across the track. Clocking in at just under three minutes, it’s a fairly valiant attempt at a modern pop song and is wonderfully produced and contemporary without riding the zeitgeist. It’s a genuinely memorable song that wouldn’t sound out of place on prime time Radio 1.
