Night on My Side

Genre: Rock; Lead Performer: Gemma Hayes

Where do we begin? Hmmm. The sweetly pained vocals sound darn similar to Beth Orton’s. The guitars, at times, like Orton’s, are strummy and acoustic – when they are not Sonic Youth-like walls of sound (”Let a Good Thing Go”) or My Bloody Valentine-tinged drones (”Lucky One”). Radioheadlike computer twitters and wispy ballads give way to driving bass. Hmmm. There might just be too much character to characterize.
