Crisp N' Fresh: Get Bowled Over With Paloma Faith

Monday, August 10, 2009

With a velvety rich and soulful tone, Paloma Faith mourns the lost of her man in this engaging video for new single, "New York" from her soon-to-be released debut, Do You Want The Truth Or Something Beautiful? Appealing visuals of a glittering cityscape of the Big Apple mixed in with the central location of a bowling alley, make the video quite charming. The track itself is gorgeous enough to keep you watching. Yes, the tune may seem a little "showy" especially with a Gospel choir backing her up (cause you know it wouldn't be a big ballad without it), but their is no denial of the song's lovely arrangement and how Paloma's classy persona approaches the track. Frankly, I like this better than her last single, "Stone Cold Sober", probably because I've been in the mood for a swanky ballad without all the gimmicks (aka over-singing). Nicely done.
