Husky Rescue - Diamonds In The Sky
With Husky Rescue's forthcoming second album a supposedly darker affair, it's a shame that taster single, Diamonds In The Sky, feels like a lesser retread of previous material. One is specifically reminded of City Lights, thanks to the yearning lap steel guitar and gentle swooshes of electronica. Perhaps the problem here is that Reeta-Leena Korhola's voice sounds so sweet it could bring on toothache, or maybe it's that, despite the right elements being in place, the magic seems to be missing. Sadly, the disappointment continues with the remixes, usually a strong point for Husky Rescue.
