‘Leaf Off / The Cave’
‘Killing For Love’
González also played ‘Leaf Off / The Cave’ as part of a live session for BBC Radio 6 Music last month.
The singer-songwriter released ‘Vestiges & Claws’ on February 17. NME’s Ben Homewood said of the LP: “The record is littered with painstakingly layered guitar parts, mellifluous melodies and clapping drumbeats… ‘Leaf Off / The Cave’ and ‘What Will’ are beautifully constructed, and on the latter González’s guitar wraps compellingly around a rock-hard rhythm. Closer ‘Open Book’ is best, though, a perfectly executed example of González’s soothing folk.”
