Davidge feat. Sandie Shaw - Riot Pictures (7Hz Recordings) 
Davidge feat. Sandie Shaw - Riot Pictures

Release Date: 6th October 2014

So this is a bit of a first. Massive Attack collaborator Neil Davidge has teamed up with British pop icon Sandie Shaw to create a downbeat electro anthem which is set to a video of riots past and present. 'Riot Pictures' is like a weird blend of the Pet Shop Boys, Garbage, Portishead as well as Shaw's own inimitable vocal style. I have to say it feels weird to hear this legend singing a fairly downbeat song with bleak beats but it works and a lot of credit for Davidge's insight to get Shaw involved and for Shaw being willing to try something different to her usual genre. Well worth a listen if you've got open ears and an open mind.
