As her new album lures ears and acclaim, Risa Hall provides further temptation for it with new double A-sided single Sixth Sense/Inconsistently Consistent. Previous single Kids on Victoria Avenue provided a rousing teaser for Love is Telepathic, sparking only eager anticipation for Hall’s second album, which the new pairing of songs, also taken from the full-length, now firmly backs.
The great-niece of Estee Lauder and friend of The New York Dolls, New York City born and now UK, Manchester to be exact, based Hall has been no stranger to praise through her acting work and music through the likes of the Apple Tarte EP and debut album Glass Full…? which she recorded with Nigel Stonier (Waterboys, Thea Gilmore, Sandi Thom). Love is Telepathic is quickly drawing even stronger plaudits with many reasons why apparent in Hall’s new single.
Sixth Sense is a warm caress of the senses, acoustic guitar and melancholic melody uniting to cradle the magnetically engaging voice of Hall. There is not an overriding feeling of sadness washing ears though, the warmth of all elements a boldly catchy temper to the shadows coating the heart bred lyrical reflection. Increasingly captivating with every passing minute let alone each listen, the song is pure seduction.
Its companion, Inconsistently Consistent, is a livelier engagement from the first note; starting on a keen stroll which its partner built up to. Again melody and voice steal attention though the spicy flame of a solo which breaks out takes its share of eager focus too. Kids on Victoria Avenue showed an enjoyable Chrissie Hynde/Pretenders hue to its adventure which Inconsistently Consistent also touches if with not quite as much firmness.
Both songs please ears and spark further intrigue to check out Love is Telepathic, with for personal tastes Sixth Sense stealing the show and especially revealing everything potent and enjoyable about Risa Hall.
Sixth Sense/Inconsistently Consistent is released October 7th with Love is Telepathic available now @ http://risahall.com/product/love-is-telepathic/
