Polly Paulusma – Darkside


Single Review by Mark Bayross

Not an ode to Darth Vader and co, rather a seemingly autobiographical paean to Ms. Paulusma’s enduring sense of musicality. As the catchy, folky chorus states, she may well have danced with Cambridge dons having secured a First in English from that very establishment, but, having met a few myself, I kind of doubt it.

Still, this is as good an introduction as any to the next in the seemingly endless line of Norah Joneses and Katie Meluas making a bee line for the wallets of the thirtysomething iPod clan, and her forthcoming debut album SCISSORS IN MY POCKET.
