New review of the Leighfield/Vanders Split EP
The review is in German but Google Translate sorted it out for me:
“Short and sweet, four-song, two pieces from each other gecovert, then Luke Leighfieldand Jose Vanders present with their EP ”Split”. That it is both a man and a woman is - Jose Vanders thus by no means is a Catalan bard - that we know either, because thegood has gathered on her MySpace page already hosts virtual fans around, or else, youcan the views of the beautifully designed cover and sees wander - drawn cute, sittingnext to Luke at the piano and the arms in the air reckend (yielding to a burglar?) MissJose. Because Leighfield and Vanders are two young singer-songwriter from the UnitedKingdom.
And deliver the subtle and dreamy pop with piano accompaniment, delicate guitarplucking and occasional intrusions of a cello. Leigh Fields voice comes in an otherwisevery harmonious opener “Metal Detector” is a little thin over, so I‘m curious how Vandersproposes the following piece. In short, good. Charismatic, not too sweet, cuddlysounding voice but which, when heard the refrain ”I’ll try to make everyday count,” a littlesound like Kate Nash. The third song, I can only guess, is probably to the very greatdocumentary “Man on Wire” named. Or not, at least this was now a good opportunity to point out in passing …
Here are two sensitive, melodic love souls come together, to make himself and his audience something comfortable in the cool autumn days ahead. If they succeeded!”
