Emma Pollock was one half of the vocal department in the immensely talented Scottish band the Delgados. While their passing was a sad loss (‘The Great Eastern’ remains a true lost classic) it meant that some day we’d be basking in the embrace of the various solo projects that emerged from the splinters. Two years on from the break-up the first fruits of the dissolution will be Emma Pollock’s solo debut (the much delayed) ‘Watch The Fireworks’ which is due for release in September. Anyone enamoured by Pollock’s startling voice will not be disappointed with ‘Limbs’ from the forthcoming album. The acoustics are particularly sparse, the piano’s less so but the music is a mere sorbet for Pollock’s rich vocals. Her ability to pour a swimming pool full of emotions through softly focused words is incredibly special. I could listen to her sing all day and most of the night. KD
