Ella Eyre Decks Herself Out In Jermaine Stewart's 'Clothes'
Tuesday, January 28, 2014
I've always said that dance songs can be ballads in disguise, and well, I've got one piece of supporting evidence to that fact. The late Jermaine Stewart (whom I adore and believe is an underrated piece to the R&B/Pop puzzle) is most known for his 1986 hit, "We Don't Have To Take Our Clothes Off" which introduced us to cherry wine and safe-sexing. Always has this song brought my feet to dance, but newcomer Ella Eyre has simmered down the track to a slow burn. Miss Eyre, whom you remember was a prominent feature on Rudimental's stellar Home, showcases that rousing vocal she possesses by taking the track to a staggering ballad level. She makes it a tad more dramatic when she twists it this way, but eh, she's offering the song for free and I'm rooting for Ella Eyre to make 2014 her oyster as she's got a couple of contenders already in the bag ("Deeper" for starters). Just add this one, and hear why she's kind of a big deal to look out for.
