Published Oct 09, 2007How superb it is to see Britains (arguably) most idiosyncratic and underappreciated mainstream solo artist not only return, but with yet another staggering effort before years end. After 2005s brilliant debut, Ruby Blue, Róisín Murphy proved Molokos success over the years was all due to her exquisite fabulousness. This second single from her forthcoming sophomore album, Overpowered (due out October 15 in the UK on EMI; no release date here yet), shows shes eschewed a lot of Ruby Blues peculiar studio trickery for something much more commercially viable. A collaboration with Groove Armadas Andy Cato, "Let Me Know borrows deeply from 90s disco house, lacing it with skittish synths and an uplifting chorus. Its the most accessible piece of music Murphys released since 2003s "Familiar Feeling - a sign that shes ripe to surpass her former groups past triumphs. To boot, the video shows she can bring high fashion to the greasiest spoon out there.
P.S. Dont miss out on downloading Overpowered outtake, "Modern Timing - available from EMI for a limited time only.
