The Mummers – March Of The Dawn

The comparisons to Bjork may be inevitable as much for the lush production as Raissa Khan-Panni’s faultlessly dispatched vocals. There is purity a here, Raissa sings without the hint of a struggle, those high notes are pitched as easily as the rest of us hum along to a great chorus. So her vocal talent is not in doubt but the best news of all is that she can pen great tunes too as ‘March Of The Dawn’ so ably proves. It forms one section of a mini LP (8 tracks, full blow album in my eyes) called ‘Tale To Tell (Part One)’ (part two is due early in the new year) and even after 5 plays it already sounds like a classic to me. Should appeal to Morcheeba fans and for that matter everyone else who wasn’t a Morcheeba fan. A luminous new talent from Brighton to light up summer’s passing. KD

    That’s a great track; I love how effortless her voice sounds. I’ll have to check out the LP. Thanks for posting.
