Cate Le Bon‘s sophomore CYRK is a brilliant follow-up to her whimsical Me Oh My. There are so many interesting moments in this record, Greta trails along to the final sounds of a trumpet and a marching band beat, Falcon Eyed is a punky up-beat jam, The Man I Wanted is a lazy rock lullaby, Ploughing Out 2 is the most removed – with a muffled vocal effect and jangly percussion – she’s definitely grown in confidence with more of that full band sound. She’s most certainly detached herself from any comparison to Nico, Cate Le Bon is becoming a sound all her own. Watch her video for Fold the Cloth, below.
