ALICE RUSSELL ‘FOR A WHILE’ VIDEO: “CLASSIC SOUL WITH A FORWARD-LOOKING AND EXPERIMENTAL OPENNESS”
Check out Alice Russell’s massive video/track for ‘For A While, the third single from fifth album ‘To Dust’ (out now).
In combining the vocal prowess and raw emotional potency of classic soul with a forward-looking and experimental openness, Alice Russell is one of the best singers around.‘For A While’ sees Russell and producer TM Juke drawing on their eclectic influences for a song that pushes the boundaries of soul music.
Introduced by a lilting keyboard bassline, the attention-grabbing, boogie-inducing track builds with multi-layered vocals and a volley of melodic hooks, calling to mind gospel choirs and ‘90s R ‘n’ B groups in equal measure.
Highly in demand, she has guested on Talking Heads leader David Byrne’s solo LP, to add to work with Mr Scruff, Quantic, DJ Yoda and Nostalgia 77.
