English singer-songwriter Lucy Rose has a real knack for making intelligent, emotive-folk of the sort that made Laura Marling and Emmy the Great so well known, so it was no wonder that she was asked to appear on Bombay Bicycle Club's last album. Now, she has released "Middle of the Bed," which will hopefully help to push her music into the stratosphere.
"Middle of the Bed" melds the styles of these artists with the hushed intimacy and production style of the xx, in this tale of a love doomed to failure. The repeated lyrics "you don't know my hand size" carries a very strong resonance indeed.
The "Middle of the Bed EP" is out now on Fauna Records.
