Sarah Blasko - As Day Follows Night

Sarah Blasko's third album, her first in the UK, is a stripped back affair. Where her previous albums had been more layered, this is a more sparse effort, piano led and tinged with folk and jazz. Recent single, 'We Won't Run' is a catchy thing, driven along by primal drumming. The jaunty pop of 'Hold On My Heart' is simultaneously jaunty and slightly spooky. Elsewhere, 'Bird On A Wire' sounds like a long lost jazz standard, carried along by double bass while strings swell underneath. Her voice is a bluesy, witchy creature, and in combination with the atmospheric instrumentation the album summons the feeling of being in some otherworldly jazz club. A confident, grown up pop record with a real sense of musicianship.
