Six tracks from Wynter Gordon’s highly-anticipated debut album With The Music I Die have found their way into our inbox and they are all we were hoping for and more.
The 25-year-old singer has delivered half a dozen scorching dance anthems that underline her status as one of pop music’s hottest talents.
Two of the six tracks will already be very familiar to you – Wynter’s number one smash Dirty Talk and current single Til Death – but here are our thoughts on the four new songs.
Don’t Stop Me
An effortlessly cool club anthem with an icy edge that is normally associated with the likes of Robyn and Roisin Murphy. The highlight is Wynter cooing “I can melt your heart, you’ll be all mine” and the sassy countdown at the end. Perhaps not single material but great nonetheless.
Buy My Love
Gold diggers have a new theme song! Buy My Love is cute and catchy – definitely a good choice for single number three. It’s more electro than we’re used to from the diva but there’s still something quite camp and ’80s about the track. A radio ready hit.
Still Getting Younger
An explosion of dreamy synths frame this soft and pretty dance-pop love song. It’s reminiscent of Kylie’s Tightrope with a bit of 80s Moroder thrown in for good measure. The lyrics are gorgeous too – “I’m not lonely, I just need you. You’re this empty space I got.” Beautiful.
Back To You
Now this is very different for Wynter. It’s a moody mid-tempo electronic groove with amazing lyrics like “you don’t know that when I lie in bed I touch myself to you” and “I took you for granted, I spit in your face”. It’s an atmospheric and multi-layered little gem that no doubt will worm its way further into your consciousness with each listen.
We’ve already heard enough to know that this is going to be one of the essential pop albums of 2011.
With The Music I Die is released in Australia on June 17. Here’s Wynter’s latest single one last time.
