Boomkat Product Review:
One of His Name Is Alive's consistent charms has always been their songwriting, despite an uncanny ability to reinvent themselves from one record to the next. Some of Warn Defever’s most beloved influences - cosmic jazz, funk 45's, and gentle acoustic blues - shine through anew, but the haunting moods are still there, and Lovetta's extraordinary singing continues to set the music aglow. Amongst its many treasures, ‘Last Night’ offers a couple of typically Defever-esque raids on the past (a showstopping ‘Teardrops’, which was originally written by Eddy Grant's Equals and a sweet nod to some friends (‘Maybe’, by Ida). But it's the HNIA originals that captivate - the haunting title track, the heartmelt of ‘Flowers’, the stripped-down ‘I Can See Myself In Her’ and the smoky intimacy of the closing ‘Train’. Check.
