Erica Romeo

Beyond The Nettles Burn (Oracle Records)

The new album from Italian Erica Romeo (singing in English) is destined to cause a few electro/pop types to sit up and ejaculate: “My! This woman has got it going on!” She’s paddling in some very transcendent waters here, her folky roots underpinning some sublime songs that rely on subtle shades of light and dark and her clear as a bell voice, to tinkle all those emotional bells. We’re not talking bangers here, but dreamscapes, which, nevertheless, eschew wispiness for some proper hooks.
