Bare Beats/Stray Dog – Cling
“Cling” is the new 5 track EP from producer Bare Beats and singer Stray Dog aka Iona Roisin. Both have worked on each others solo releases in the past and they have now come together for a full release, and I have to say the collaboration works really well.
Musically it is laid back, electronic beats with classical and alternative influences, vocally Roisin is soulful, yet still with indie appeal. You can just as easily imagine her singing with an acoustic guitar as you can over these beats, Marlena Topley Bird would be a good comparison.
“Cling” is a melding of two styles that work perfectly together, creating an EP full of real emotion and feeling.
