After a long Easter weekend, today I've definitely been suffering from the return to work blues (plus my body clock is completely messed up right now) so it's little surprise today I've been searching for some soul music to satisfy me. Thankfully Billie Marten is on hand to make these April showers make perfect sense.
"Heavy Weather" is so stunningly simple with it's bare bones instrumentation that you're forced to hang on every breathy note Billie exhales. Hints of celtic folk music are laced into each verse as the vocals meander through the registers with gleeful abandon. If it's raining where you are today, grab a blanket and settle down to enjoy it with Billie Marten.
