THE LOW-DOWN You just don’t get that fantastic Tamla Motown sound any more, but there’s something about the pop swing that underpins Farley’s music that has you wondering if Berry Gordy has been producing. She’s got a great blues voice, which she puts over ska-inflected rhythms to really joyous effect. From south London, Farley writes all her own material, and already her lyrical prowess is becoming a talking point. With this amount of raw talent she can delve into any genre she wants and still sound superb. It would be unfair to label her the new Amy or Lily but there really is something wondrous going on here. Radio will love her.
