14th Reemerge With 'Are You Sleeping'
Monday, May 20, 2013
Of all the male-female duos that have cropped up as of recent, London twosome 14th got a bit lost in the shuffle, and wrongfully so. As the moodier kin to the likes of AlunaGeorge, 14th's exceptional EP, Hide Yourself, was one of my top favorites back in 2011, as from it they penned some poetical, yet potent pop melodies that urged repeating.
Quite glad to know that these two are back on the grind as they quietly drop a dual cover that consists of Tina Moore's "Never Gonna Let You Go" and Indo's "R U Sleeping". Blending these two songs together in some kind of melancholic mutant mash-up is pretty dang cool (not to mention the fab free download option), and lead vocalist, Tracey Duodu carries it off with soul stirring results.
Consider me captivated.
