Lost and Lonely Singles Club issue the new Run Toto Run single, Catch My Breath. Things burble and squeak around Rachael’s vocals, a steam powered musical box of a melody. Her vocals are perfect for those who find Joanna Newsom too winsome, or Bjork too kooky. They have a lightness and a studied cool, but also a refreshing assurance of well mannered confidence. The Magic Arm remix adds a few electronic bleeps and gurgles and slows things down til it sounds like a space age Saint Etienne, with a touch of glowing aura. The Shoplifters remix is concentrating on the vocals, with minimal beats pushing things along, which works lovely.
Catch My Breath is released by Lost and Lonely Singles Club on January 18th
