Reliably informed

Why Would You (Go)? has a vibe perfect for this time of year: that gloopy, fluid quality that’s as much as you can handle when the heat goes up and the air turns your thoughts dreamy.

Jodie Nicholson’s smooth, layered vocals appear like a mirage, and you can’t help but picture hot landscapes and think bigger. It’s pensive and solitary, more like quiet wonderings than a direct address to someone, and it sounds just like being abandoned in the middle of somewhere beautiful, in the sense of both a physical place and a relationship. The break in the middle of the song is gorgeous, and it’s where Jodie’s feathery voice, pure as a bell, is heard in its full glory. A pleasure from start to finish.
