Suif feat. CW Jones
'No Point Complaining' / 'No Point Complaining (Instr)'
(Little Beat More)
A few seconds in, once the strings tumble down, and Suif's wide-open beat expands for CW Jones' outstanding vocal performance to meander upon, you know that this is class.
Every element, every riff and every refrain is succinctly placed, it's classic-sounding and is poised to be an instant classic. Warm-up, end of the night, peak time, there's nowhere that this isn't going to sound right.
As a producer led cut, we may never be treated to a live performance of this with a band replicating Suif's beatmaking, and that would be a shame as I can totally picture a big band orchestra in my mind, huge string section, the lights rolling down for CW to appear and belt out this song, very much with the jaw-dropping power that greats like Sharon Jones or Amy Whitehouse would have exuded.
A brilliant record, pure and simple. Buy it.
