of this single. She sweeps up all three emotions in a voice that's seductive
and creepy in equal measures, a low rasp that
drags the goosebumps from under your skin with the simple promise/threat: "You're in my heart". It's enough to freak out the rest of her band, clearly, who spend 'Dark Is Light Enough' trying to speed away from her with an urgent, low-slung drone that's part krautrock cool, part lo-fi noodle-doodle.
