Single review: Linzi Clark – The Kitchen

Linzi Clark, one half of Paisley electro-pop duo DRIFT, released her debut single ‘The Kitchen’ on the 14th of May. And, boy, is it a treat.

With its calm, bluesy backing, courtesy of Bovine, backing Clark’s rich, deep vocals, ‘The Kitchen’ is somewhere you want to hang out, grab a glass of water and stay a while. Clark’s vocals, while a departure from what you may expect after her work with DRIFT, are sure to please – their rich texture evokes images of a smoky, velvet-couched room.

‘The Kitchen’ also details a most peculiar sadness: a real hole-in-the-heart yearning kind of sad, with the idea of recognising your own self-worth, and not seeing that being met by those around you. Noticing cracks that have been leaking your love out for a long time.

‘The Kitchen’ is a cracking first look at Linzi Clark’s solo material, and you should definitely keep an eye and an ear out for what’s coming next.

‘The Kitchen’ is out from 14th May
