I love this song. I was introduced to Gabriella Cilmi hours ago thanks to her performance on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, and now I’m in love.
The 17-year-old (!!!) singer was born in Australia to Italian parents and now lives in the UK.
The song features bluesy drums, jazzy upright bass, and a folky guitar riff, that culminates with faint church organs.
Cilmi’s voice is raspy and authoritative, and is reminiscent of Amy Winehouse pre-downward spiral… she sounds much older than she is.
