Wild Cat Records
As the title implies, Amanda Easton's new record is a chilled, sophisticated affair. She lives up to the title with her rich croon and subtle songs.
"Less Ordinary" is a jazzy, smoky affair with a neat melody. "Nothing" is a brassier song, Easton neatly putting down a guy with little to offer. "Just Not That Into You" sees Easton tackling a song to a buoyant backing. "You were the hurricane through my heart" she sings. It screams soundtrack material. "Ready Aim Fire" was co-written with Simon Morel and it's a great track. Easton's album ably demonstrates just what a chanteuse can do.
