Album Review: Gena Rose Bruce - Mad Love

17 July 2015 | 2:37 pm | Nick Atkins

"Her smouldering vocal has all the right kinds of edginess and the live, ambient studio production gives a warm vintage feel."

The Melbourne singer leaves you craving more with this brief, tantalising four-track EP.

Her smouldering vocal has all the right kinds of edginess and the live, ambient studio production gives a warm vintage feel. Good Thing leads the way with its sauntering, swaggering beat. The sweltering and debaucherous Call Girl is pure sleaze, like a visit to a nasty strip joint on the outskirts of Vegas. There is more light and space in the third track, Smooth, whose weighty shimmering guitars create a vast cinematic soundscape. Mad Love speaks of infatuation and obsession. Intoxicating, seductive and full of longing.
