Single Review – Gabrielle Aplin – Slip Away

Gabrielle Aplin’s second studio album Light Up The Dark is on it’s way at the end of the week and another single in ‘Slip Away’ has been unveiled to draw a final emphasis on Gabrielle’s more rock orientated and anthemic second effort. Though a comparatively steadier track compared to the title track, it still offers up sharp percussion and delicately placed riff with the scope to push to tonal peaks throughout and for Aplin to follow suit with her clearly developed vocals. The songs on this album, much like the singles are nothing particularly special musically, structurally or in terms of production, but one thing these tracks have shown is that Gabrielle Aplin is much better vocalist, songwriter and deliverer of music than we might have previously given her credit for.
