This fay English 2 piece pop band on the Spanish Elefant Record Label are back for the 3rd release and still stick to their polished ‘60s Top 40 Europop style with slick melodies and strings. It’s “Parapluies De Cherbourg” 365 days a year on “When I Lost You,” which is so engrained in one’s DNA. “Don’t Know What I’m Doing,” is a bit more upbeat with a bouncy rhythm where the music gently airbrushed the spaces around the vocals. Maddie Dobie’s voice is soft and warm yet remains at a respectful distance. “Fall In Love With Me” then works a lounge music feel with a slight Latin touch. “When You Look At Her,” then becomes very melancholic and regretful. Joe Moore then has his Lee Hazlewood moment by singing large parts of “Nightingale” before Maddie Dobie joins in again with a sultry approach that adds a bit of spice even before the thoughtful solo. She’s more of a Jane Birkin than a Nancy Sinatra, though. “The Moment Your Heart Would Say Goodbye” is again so familiar in terms of its melody to anyone having exposure to 60s Europop, though the words are all original. “You Stopped The World” has its moments, but tends to lose a bit of momentum, which or may not have been the intention. “Not That Type Of Girl” again has a nice bounce with certain insistence that achieves its purpose, though the accordion like solo and occasional lead touches then spoils it for me. “Sometimes” is perhaps the most Sarah records like piece on the CD, but has more depth and a more mature musical approach. “Fools Fall In Love” was in turn wistful and romantic, with upbeat and airy moments before realism sets in again. The record could have ended on a stronger note than “Sometimes,” which was a bit too languid for my taste. The instrumental title track would have been better placed here as a disc ender. [Gecko]
