This is a pretty “rad” remix as I believe the kids say. It sounds like Paloma has just met Donna Summer whilst being backed by New Order at Manumission. Yup, it’s a rather fab reworking of the lead single from her brand new album ‘Fall To Grace’ due out on May 20 which could even tempt us onto the dancefloor and release our hairbrush diva “inner camp.” It also demonstrates a view we’ve long held, that although jazz and blues are undoubtedly her first love she can pretty much sing and nail any genre (see also her collaboration with Graham Coxon and her very early burlesque cabaret garage rock n roll that was Paloma and The Penetrators )
Some people are somewhat surprised we are Paloma fans, we in turn are equally astonished as to why they are perplexed….(ok we’ll stop now) we are a broad church, she’s got an amazing voice, is incredible live and is a good laugh to boot, what more do you need? And for the avoidance of any further doubt, and at the risk of blowing our own trumpet ( well someone’s gotta 😉 ) try this ……”Who discovered Paloma Faith?” 🙂
The “Google god” never lies surely ?

I saw her on Jools Holland bbc show on t.v. and yes the sound is fresh and exciting.
Absolutely amazing voice, and the emotion she shows when singing Picking Up The Pieces gives me goosebumps! Love the video for that song too 🙂 http://bit.ly/MxSQ07
Paloma Faith is so great. Love this! And her video for “Never Tear Us Apart” is beautiful
