Louise Aubrie’s “Last” single review from her forthcoming album “Antonio.” “Love is a four-letter word”…classic rock pop songstress mode.
But very strong, ridiculously catchy, unapologetic, a bit in your face and very, very good. Driving drums, jangly, jabbing riffs, echoey, timeless, polished but not contrived.
Lousie Aubrie is English, though based in New York, which seems exactly right, after you listen to this almost perfect indie pop rock song. I mean where else could she exist!?
Soaring strings back the spiraling guitars as Aubrie demands “where is Antonio?” It’s Pet Shop Boys meets The Pretenders meets The Cure…but very now.
This is Aubrie’s fifth album, so she clearly knows what she’s doing. She has her sound, she’s not trying to impress anyone, which is her charm, or at least the charm of this track anyway. Willowy dark eyed and confident, Louise Aubrie has my attention. If this is the first track, then I want more.
