Zero 7 - Somersault

Zero 7's new single, Somersault, sounds exactly like their last single (as I remember it). Or, to flatter them, you might say it bears a resemblance to Air's All I Need, but without the sense of space that band so often evoke.

There's acoustic guitar, a soul vocal (courtesy of Sia), violins, the merest hint of electronica... but the whole thing is dreadfully earnest, 'adult', polite, flat, boring, dull...

Chill out? This one will go the whole hog and send you to sleep.
