50 songs from last year – #23 – Kate Tempest – Marshall Law

Lots of people on music sites seem to be skeptical of Kate Tempest as an interloper from the arts. I spoke to a (published) poet I know today and he isn’t impressed with her work as it stands on the page. This wouldn’t look that good written down, but as a thing to listen to it’s a complete success, better than ‘Circles’ for sure, capturing something true that I haven’t heard captured before, and I’m glad that she’s getting all this attention.
