Smoove & Turrell return with a storming double-A side featuring the disco cut - ‘You’re Gone’ and the gorgeous and ironic ‘A Deckham Love Song’.
From the moment the lads heard label mate Izo FitzRoy’s debut album 'Skyline' they knew they had to work together and started adapting a song 'You’re Gone' with her in mind.
The result is an absolute ear worm of uplifting chic style instrumentation combined with haunting lyrics – disco dynamite delivered with feeling as John & Izo’s vocals perfectly encapsulate the balance of frustration, pride and vulnerability present in a lovers argument.
The flipside is the undeniably pretty ‘A Deckham Love Song’ – a smooth slice of sublime songwriting with a Richard Hawley-esque tongue-in-cheek look back at a childhood spent in Deckham. The beautiful and sentimental imagery conjured up in the lyrics and tasteful musical arrangement inspired by Gene Wilder’s Willy Wonka, ironically offsets the subject matter of a childhood growing up on an estate in the North East of England.
