There should be an announcement before ‘You Cry Yourself Away’ warning listeners that they need to stop what they are doing. All great music should be listened to without distraction but in a world where they are everywhere it is often not the case, yet Penny Bridges track is so truly mesmerizing everything else disappears and you have no choice but to listen.

Deceptively simple in its production ‘You Cry Yourself Away’ is gorgeously hypnotic, with minimum support from guitar and piano this is largely achieved through Bridges brilliantly melodic vocals. For the singer there’s nowhere to hide, this laid bare approach not only highlighting her vocal skills but also demonstrating that she is already an accomplished songwriter.

Hailing from Wolverhampton Bridges refuses to be defined by genre, have a listen to her other Soundcloud release the provocative Ascendency. To say she is one for the future would be an insult, Penny Bridges is already here, you just need listen to her!
