Boomkat Product Review:
Nancy Elizabeth returns with a graceful third album that isn't afraid of its own intelligence. Opener ‘The Last Battle’ is indicative of the Manchester-based talent's present ambition, her voice multi-tracked into a dramatic, Morricone-style chorus, the sighing strings and vibrato guitar underlining that spag-western vibe and also nodding to the mariachi-flavoured psych of Love’s ‘Alone Again Or’. ‘Heart’ sounds like a less fragile Julia Holter, precious vocal harmonies and subtle synth zaps orbiting an almost new jack swing-style rhythm, but Elizabeth doesn’t settle into a predictable pattern: each song is given a unique treatment, whether it’s the pillowy cold wave string-pads cushioning ‘Simon Says Dance’ or the limpid piano minimalism of ‘Desire’. She doesn’t overegg the pudding, paring the arrangements down to the essential, and rightly giving her glassily elegant vocals room to breathe - whether soloing intimately and unadorned or studio-spun into vast waves of harmony. Atmospheric, ambient-aware singer/songwriter fare has become an overcrowded genre in recent years, but it’s worth making room for this on your deck if you dig Holter, Colleen, Julianna Barwick, etc.
