Swearin’ front-woman Allison Crutchfield’s self-released solo EP ‘Lean In to It’ is out now and we’ve just listened to ‘You’ taken from it.
Documenting the breakdown of a relationship from her youth ‘You’ is, in her customary style completely DIY. The piano-led bedroom recording is four-minutes of melodic rawness, the simple but effective piano-melodies are backed up by a layer of guitar feedback and the use of a drum-machine, but its Allison’s brutally honest and poignant lyrics that stand out on this beautiful track and she’s proved yet again, you don’t need a £500 an hour studio if you’ve got the talent she has.
