Anna Calvi: Should be Writing Bond Themes

15 02 2011

Got some new discs this week, purchased from Rough Trade, the standout album of the ones I bought is Anna Calvi’s debut.

Her self-titled debut is an album that is hard to categorise. At times the dark sounds of PJ Harvey and at others the booming sonic power of Shirley Bassey.

The sound has been described as dark, romantic, atmospheric pop, although for me I hear little in the way of pop, at least in the radio-friendly traditional sense. You can definitely hear the dark romance, and the rock sound gives off a real sexual emotion and a few classical undertones add to this feeling as well.

Nominated in December for the BBC’s Sound of 2011 poll so this is going to be a massive year for the British born artist.

Must listen tracks:

– The Devil
– Suzanne and I (this track is what gave me the idea for the title of this blog post, could see Calvi producing a Bind theme!)
