A song a day: Sarah Blasko – All Coming Back
I came late to Sarah Blasko but of all her songs my favourite is the All Coming Back, the first track on her first album. What I like about it is that you can hear her trying to find her voice - the guitars and opening are pure PJ Harvey but when the key change kicks in with subtle electronics you can hear the distant call of Bjork. Yet somehow, Blasko rises above these obvious touch stones to create a unique statement. That Blasko moved on from those influences to become one of the most striking female voices in the Australian music scene is a testament to her talent. even more amazing, that she actually made me like a Cole Chisel song is miraculous...
