It’s amazing to think that it’s almost 30 years since Swing Out Sister released their first album with the pop-soul hit ‘Breakout’. With three decades of experience behind them the duo of Corrine Drewery and Andy Connell certainly know how to craft lush, at times expansive dreamy soulscapes and at others, highly polished, sophisticated jazz tinged grooves and ‘Almost Persuaded’ is drenched in both. The sultry, sparkling ‘Happier Than Sunshine’ has an infectious head nodding tempo aided by trickling drops of percussion and keys that add atmosphere, the Bacharach style ‘Almost Persuaded’ has a delightfully lazy, mellow vibe while ‘I Wish I Knew’ tips a wink to London’s swinging 60s while at the same time being thoroughly modern – something the duo do so well. Corinne’s voiced adopts a rougher edge on the lovely, percussion lead mid tempo ‘Everyone’s Here’ while the jazz club vibe of ‘Be My Valentine’ is a bittersweet tale told to a backing that brings to mind a sophisticated cocktail party. Highly accomplished music to relax to.
