Every artist needs a killer song and every killer song needs a killer hook. Only You, a hooky retro masterpiece by one-to-watch Amber Simone is exactly that kind of creation. From the first bars, when she struts into the track like a true, deep-toned Diva, the music fills your ears. Amber-Simone, originally from East London but now settled in quiet, leafy Hertfordshire, is an original. Reviewers call her voice androgynous, but I think that is off the mark. Anyone who can sound like Terence Trent D’Arby one minute and Sade the next is more like a vocal acrobat. And how good is the chorus? Infectious and feel-good, with the bass pumping over a simple beat, it is just begging you to slide onto the dance floor. I predict this track will become a go-to classic for DJ’s all over the world.
