Wovoka Gentle – 1,000 Opera Singers Working
Wovoka Gentle - 1,000 Opera Singers Working in Starbucks
Release Date: Out Now
As titles go, ‘1,000 Opera Singers Working in Starbucks’ is up there for title of the year in terms of the social commentary and image that it creates but how does the music stack up? Let’s find out. London trio Wovoka Gentle (no idea either) have woven an electro tapestry made of synths, thrown in a perky beat and sprinkled this with camp-pop magic dust. We’re not quite in Mika territory here but certainly in the vicinity Felix Hagan and the Family or Temposhark which is my kind of country. Great title, great tune and confusing band name – I’ll take that.
