In this latest edition of T.L.M.T’s song of the week feature The Mixed-Tape we turn our attention to Emma Lou’s single ‘One Good Reason’.
A genre record with a real lived-in sound, Emma Lou’s ‘One Good Reason’ is a slinky slice of soul that slow-burns its way from verse to chorus.
With a backing band that more than lives up to the task of recreating the retro R&B (mixed in with some more modern Winehouse, Duffy sounds) feel of ‘One Good Reason’, Emma Lou’s on-point voice takes centre stage and stays there from beginning to end.
What’s more, the way Emma Lou’s vocal performance seems to have lived each lyric adds to the compelling mood of ‘One Good Reason’, whilst also introducing us to an artist of immense talent.
