An incredible, genre-defying debut by Alice Smith – an album that hooks you instantly with its rich, rolicking sound, dynamic singing and hugely catchy tunes – and an artist we hope to have around for many years to come! For Lovers, Dreamers And Me sounds little like most of the neo soul efforts on the scene right now. Alice's vocals are big and soulful, with a deep range and huge depth of emotion, but the arrangements really push
this record over – mixing funky soul with psychedelia-tinged, brightly grooving pop – with often pummeling drums, chugging guitars, soaring strings and keys that roll from light piano intros to funky Rhodes and Wurlitzer grooves. The songs are totally great and have the kinds of big hooky choruses you'll be humming and head-nodding to all day. A definite winner that will no doubt go on our shortlist of the year's best albums! Tracks include "Dream", "Woodstock", "Gary Song", "New Religion", "Do I", "Fake Is The New Real", "Desert Song", "Know That I", "Secrets" and "Love Endeavor".
