Driving back from the Bafana Bafana game on Tuesday evening, annoyed, tired and annoyed, I heard this track Let Us Move On and, in the context of the appalling football display that I’d just witnessed, it didn’t seem like a bad idea.
At the time, I thought it sounded a bit like Dido (the artist formerly known as Florian Cloud de Bounevialle Armstrong). But how could that be, because Dido (TAFKAFCdBA) hasn’t done anything for years and anything worthwhile for even longer?
Well, obviously, it is Dido and it marks a new album Girl Who Got Away which is scheduled for release in early March.
Reminiscing on her early stuff in the late 90s and early noughties brings back memories of late nights chilling out at home with a glass or two of decent whiskey after the the pub quiz, the living room lit by Tiger Woods Golf and drunken chatter.
Has her music moved on since then? Not much it would seem, if this is anything to go by. But it’s worth a listen, just in case you want to mentally pop back to wherever you were 15 years ago.
