Someone – Pull It Together

screenshot 2019-01-21 at 20.30.48Doctor Doctor, I feel like a pair of curtains. Now, I know the punchline is something like ‘Pull It Together‘ but there’s every chance too many Christmas crackers were pulled over Christmas that my brain went on the fritz.

Luckily Someone has definitely got herself (Amsterdam-based genius Tessa Rose Jackson) together and produced a gloriously fuzzy new one, filled with luxurious melodies and an underlying layer of psychedelia that’ll make you wonder just exactly what your gran laced that pudding with. It’s that perfect blend of far out sounds that gives you goosebumps with choral melodies made for an a capella version that surely needs to be recorded with a gospel choir in a church somewhere. I don’t know what exactly the Dutch are smoking (alright, I probably do…) but it seems to be laced with talent for writing songs that turn your memories to mush thanks to the way they just seem to start right at the good bit without any kind of pre-amble.

There’s no need for burying the lede when the chorus is as good as this. Stick a big dollop of this on your plate and tuck right in.
