Boomkat Product Review:
LoneLady strikes out completely alone on "Former Things", welding New Order, Kate Bush and Neneh Cherry influences in a collapsing cityscape of DIY funk.
When Julie Campbell started writing "Former Things", it was going to be techno, but as she added elements it developed into an electro pop opus. She constructed the record after moving from Manchester to work at London's Somerset house, recording completely alone for the first time. The result is a laser-focused collection of songs that highlight Campbell's influences and eccentricities perfectly.
'The Catcher' is stiff and funky, loosened by unusual samples and Campbell's bright, lighthearted-but-deadpan delivery. 'Former Things' sounds like the minimalist demo for an '80s pop hit, like Prince stripped down to the barest elements. 'Fear Colours' is more in line with Neneh Cherry's fwd-thinking pop run, but disrupted with angular robot-funk grit. If the future sucks, it's probably best to look back, right?
