This is the stunning debut of guitarist and vocalist Anna Calvi. Brian Eno championed her as the most visionary female artist since Patti Smith, Nick Cave has taken her and her band on tour in Europe with Grinderman and Rob Ellis (PJ Harvey's right hand studio man) produced the album with her. Her playing is inspired by Django Rheinhart as much as Jimi Hendrix and her singing style is Nina Simone with a bit Maria Callas- her sound is a passionate and incredibly original mix.
"At every turn, there are subtleties, whispers, shadowy impulses, counterbalancing unbridled orchestral passages, and the tumult of that voice." --Mojo
