seven-inch (weep all those who actually live in the 21st century).
Of course, both tracks are suitably moody, focusing on Caroline Finch's scary, whispering vocals and alarmingly glamorous air. But because she's so utterly self-contained and focused, the first track especially is pretty good too. She lends the song exactly what it needs for that smoky, foreign air and elusive cool. And frankly, she sounds like she'd eat Contempo alive and spit out the nasty bits. Which is a damn good start.
