Keep It Together, deftly channels 60s beat pop and Stereolab all at the same time – a lover’s lament laced with urgency and optimism, piped-in directly from her space-age, bachelorette pad. B-side ‘Midnight with the Stars and You’ is fantastic punk rock take on a song that still gives fans of iconic horror movie The Shining goosebumps, while single closer ‘I Don’t Need Love’ is a stripped back slice of Americana that showcases Piney’s unique, quirky style.
After a decade spent in the UK it feels like Piney’s finally made England hers by rediscovering America, re-imagined from London’s rainy streets, channelling her inner Jekyll and Mister Hyde. The tunes on album mR hYDE’S wILD rIDE beautifully stitch together English folk, American pop, mariachi moments, trail songs and baroque beats. Sometimes it’s like an alternative musical history of a storybook amusement park ride. And need we mention, it’s a wild ride you’re going to love.
