For those who like: P.J. Harvey, Blood Orange, Lana Del Rey
Our take: From the opening notes to the poignant songwriting to Chandra Melting Tallow’s voice, Mourning Coup’s “Baby Blue” reminded us of a young P.J. Harvey. It also tickles with the electro-pop sensibilities of Dev Hynes – aka Blood Orange. Bring these two elements together and you have a startling, fantastic debut by a young singer-songwriter with an immense future. We can’t wait to hear her debut album.
What’s next: “Baby Blue” is the lead single and title track of Mourning Coup’s debut record. Baby Blue will be released August 17 via No Sun Recordings.
