Venus Fire : The Sound


A lackluster debut from local singer Hayley Clare, who attempts to model herself after Kimbra and Florence Henderson with neither their vocal power nor musical creativity. The instrumental parts on this single have that thin, pre-fab Garage Band quality and while Hayley can probably sing, what she does with her voice here is plodding and dull, in a dead pocket between the atmospheric drifts of Portishead and the spine-tingling wail of the aforementioned Florence.
