Still thinking of Lucy Rose as ‘that folky girl who does pretty backing vocals for Bombay Bicycle Club’? This track from her forthcoming debut ‘Like I Used To’ ought to make you look again. Itchy, playfully rhythmic finger-picking and Lucy’s dreamy vocals range through surprising shifts to climax in charged, not-so-sweet riff-strop.
