In the beginning, there was Emily Breeze. Forthwith, adoration washed in for her country rock’n’roll five-piece featuring the likes of John E Vistic and Howlin’ Lord. Some time later, she’s back with the long-awaited Candy Darling single, ‘Money’.
A shot of dirty guitars and cheap drum sounds is what follows, with any warmth from her previous project exchanged for a cold, sexy and above all threatening tone. The recent addition of keys is a boon, gluing the organic and synthetic sounds together in perfect dystopian harmony.
“Success won’t change me” connives Breeze with a menacing slur, “apart from all the money”. Leave it to her to make nursery rhyme lyrics clever as f*ck.
