When Under Ether

Photo Gallery: PJ Harvey

So, does Miss Contrary mark her long-awaited return with a hook-laden pop belter? A brash, raw, garage rocker? A techno-infused thumper? No, after three years away Polly Jean has chosen to come back with a whisper rather than a scream, but misjudge her at your peril. ‘When Under Ether’ is

a deft, piano-led ballad with an lovely melody that initially seems like a bizarre choice for a relaunch until you hear the whole of stunning new album ‘White Chalk’ – compared to the rest, it sounds like

‘I Predict A Riot’. However, commercial suicide has never sounded prettier.
