“Shimmering horns ride over this laid back, deep soul classic which has BIG HIT written all over it. Watch out Amy, Duffy and Co…” ends the press release for this promo 7” off the forthcoming Burners LP. Perhaps they should have called it ‘Chasing Amy’ instead as a lot of people seem to be doing just that these days. And that includes The Bamboos – who share guitarist Lance Ferguson and singer Kylie Auldist with this lot. So does it sound like Wino? Nope – but it does resemble similar Auldist-featuring tracks on the last two Bamboos LPs and if it doesn’t get them Amy-sized success it might, at least, guarantee them inclusion on the next ‘Chilled Ibiza’ compilation and a reputation as the NEW Brand New Heavies – if they’re not careful. Almost certainly one to put the ladies in a good mood but doesn’t really show off the more raucous turns at the mic that make Auldist such a star vocal turn. Can we have some dirty funk now please?
