Saint Etienne frontwoman Sarah Cracknell is stepping out for a solo break with her new LP, Red Kite. This gorgeous slice of Indie Pop seems radio-ready, with charming boy-girl trade off vocals between Sarah and Manic Street Preachers’ Nicky Wire. A sample teaser of the track has been floating around for a few week, just to whet appetites. Mine, sufficiently whet, i was pleased to finally find this video for the full track.
Fans of Saint Etienne will find familiar ground here, but it should also appeal to those moved by the works of Dean and Britta in Luna.
