Sarah Cripps – Leave Behind
|Sarah Cripps - Leave Behind|
Release Date: Out Now
The work ethic of the Canadian music scene is just phenomenal and Sarah Cripps is the latest superb artist to drop off the end of that particular conveyor belt. ‘Leave Behind’ is the tune that would roll up at the end of a David Lynch vs Quentin Tarantino Western flick and it is gorgeous. The muted acoustic strum is straight out of the First Aid Kit songbook but the shuddering lead notes are full of mournful regret and the drums shuffle with all the sluggish determination of a bullet riddled anti-hero. Vocally, Cripps is firmly in the sultry corner but there’s an element of feistiness here as well in amongst the sadness. As the track builds to its multi-layered and semi-chaotic climax you can feel the class and assured swagger oozing from every note and it’s an utter joy to behold. Keep at Canada, you’re doing fine things.
