Review - Rumer: Into Colour
Some artists occasionally dip into a 'retro' style, while others sound like they were born of another era. Rumer belongs to the latter.
Comparisons with the soft, syrupy vocals of Karen Carpenter are unavoidable, especially on the Bacharach/David-tinged Reach Out.
That 70s MOR feel is present throughout, on the wispy disco of Dangerous or the full-board 'remember the good old days' of Pizza and Pinball.
The woozy, Sunday morning feel of Come Back To Bed is completely alluring, playing into Into Colour's strong suit - it being an easy album to sink into, especially of a lazy morning.
