The Independent Culture

A third album by the Brighton-based songwriter. You may be familiar with her internet success two years ago, Tim's House. This is confessional pop manufactured for the age of social media: ooops-I've-said-it-now writing justified on the basis that, well, it's possible to say it.

But or all Light and Dark's neutral Radio 2-friendly acoustic arrangements and the odd cute bit of tune, neither Walsh's voice nor her songs make anything but the most cursory impact on the senses. Not all cupboards have contents.
