“I ain’t never gonna let her go.”

“Never Gonna Let Her Go” by Katey Brooks | I was sold this song on the basis of the vocal harmonies. It’s standard PR stuff, but sometimes I feel the press release knows me, because I’ve been getting these songs in the past few years more often. But it’s more than that. There’s a lot – there’s a lot – going on in “Never Gonna Let Her Go”, the new single from London-based singer-songwriter Katey Brooks. There’s a faint hint of the mystical. There’s a strong undercurrent of the rowdy blues. There’s this bassline you can’t exactly place, but you definitely know it’s there. And, again, her voice, which somehow manages to traverse all that and combine what could be a mess into something pretty coherent. And yes, I know, “a lot going on” has been done well before. I’m thinking of ELO and Queen, for some reason. Is this worthy of the comparison? Perhaps. [NB] (Have things I should hear? Drop me a line here.)
