Review - Iain Archer - Songbird/Frozen Lake (Single)

Iain Archer - Songbird/Frozen Lake (Single)

View The Review

5 out of 10

Macy Gray styled soft vocals, Jack Johnson like guitar work. Sounds like a decent combination really doesn't it? I though it sounded good, till I listened to it. To be honest I'm making it sound worse than it is, husky yet soft vocals, scratchy acoustic work with the occasional string chamber group backing, and all the potential for a really good track.

Unfortunately the vocals are just grating, the playing is mediocre and predictable, the tracks go on too long and the lyrics are just dull and uninspiring. You have to wonder where this went wrong.

Skip this and buy a pint instead.


1. Songbird
2. Frozen Lake
