With her Jean Seberg meets Mia Farrow looks, wistful manner and sensational talent and taste, Isobel Campbell is in mid-flight to becoming an absolute Indie Pop icon. Amorino is the first solo record Isobel has released under her own name (her previous 2 came out as thinly veiled The Gentle Waves). The album is a wonderful listening experience; touching on all the idiosyncratic influences that have formed Isobel. The title tracks 1960's Marianne Faithfull meets Broadcast tones the Yé-Yé jazz of The Breeze Whispered Your Name and October Sky the precocious ragtime of The Cat's Pyjamas, the Midnight Cowboy via South of France vibe of ?Why Does My Head Hurt So, the soft bossa of Johnny Come Home, and Song For Baby, the pop of Love For Tomorrow, that is reminiscent of her former accomplices Belle & Sebastian the lullabye of This Land Flows With Milk and the gentle C&W of Time Is Just The Same (with vocal help from ex-Captain America / Eugenius singer Eugene Kelly) these all contribute to a gorgeous listening experience. The album is inspired in Isobel's words by French girl singers, psychedelia, Jimmy Webb, Antonio Carlos Jobim, ""The Graduate"", ""Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid"" and of course, the most universal of all themes - even in these cynical times.... Love. It was recorded in little pockets of time over the last three years, in between tours, Thus, it is a personal, intimate account, moved by
experience, failure, hope, dreams and honesty. If you listen, you will hear a complete rainbow of sounds - everything from orchestras to pots and pans and bicycle bells.
