Lifted from Morcheeba's forthcoming 'Blood Like Lemonade' album, 'Even Though' is our first taster of vocalist Skye Edwards' return, after she exited the band in 2002.
It turns out to be a very welcome return. 'Even Though' is a beautiful, draggingly depressive down-tempo piece of minimalism, across which Edwards' lilting voice cuts a hypnotic, lullaby-simple path. A smattering of acoustic strumming and the occasional, sparkling synth are the only things that add character to this quiet shuffle of a song, but Edwards' sad, sweet vocals deserve their place at the heart of 'Even Though.' This is mesmerising alt-pop to tap your feet and think whimsical thoughts to.
