Single Review – Lucy Rose – Is This Called Home

The unmistakeable silky vocals of Lucy Rose take centre stage in her new track Is This Called Home; a tender guitar number, sustained by quickening percussion, elegant orchestral notes and glistening harmonies. Her powerful vocal chords carry the track prominently until around two minutes into the track, by which time I’m unfortunately a little bored. Though the track still has gorgeous aspects to come, it goes too long without any great substance. It doesn’t have the upholding power that Our Eyes or Like an Arrow of her previous LP did. Having said that, the simple instrumentalism serves to compliment the beautiful lyrics and the light tones of her voice. It’s a delicate and wonderfully executed composition, but also pretty boring.
