Mina Tindle - I Command (Believe Recordings)
|Mina Tindle - I Command|
Fans of the National will, no doubt, recognise Mina Tindle's tones from her work on their 'Boxer' album but, with a second album on the horizon later this year, she is ready to step out in to the spotlight. New single 'I Command' is one part fragility and one part fierce defiance as the piano melody swells and crescendos thanks to the beats, synths and crashing cymbals. Musically, this is something in the realm of Florence + The Machine or Goldfrapp but the deal clincher is Tindle's beautifully unique and captivating voice. There is an impish quality to the vocals but without the oft associated innocence, rather Tindle has a feistiness that you might expect from the likes of 6 Day Riot or the hugely underrated 12 Rounds. Simply put? Gorgeous stuff.
