Single Review – Woman’s Hour – Her Ghost

Woman’s Hour are a four piece consisting of Fiona Burgess, William Burgess, Nicolas Graves and Josh Hunnisett and plug some great atmospheric and spaced out music guided by Fiona’s vocals. They originally did this from their hometown of Kendal but now they forge such music from their new base in London. Their newest track ‘Her Ghost’ was played and reviewed rather positively on 6 Music’s Roundtable last Thursday and was where this song caught my attention. The track is almost a cleaner and more sharply produced Warpaint track with the elongated and lightweight synth sounds and guitars. The bass line flashing in bursts and the percussion remaining minimal results in a very feather-like song that is has a slightly added glaze to it from Fiona’s vocals that echo back into the neatly arranged instrumentals and have a soft edged vulnerability about them that acts as the variable in the song. A sleek and well produced track.
