Duffy:: Rockferry

Who knows what will happen tomorrow, but Duffy’s Rockferry has been charming me and a whole host of other folks for a little while now. With hard hitting hooks and a gigantic soulful voice that fills the air with a heavy though self-assured charisma laced with a hint of menace, it is hard not to get carried away by this record. Travelling on the tunes of Rockferry, one can’t help feeling like this lady is the atmospheric embodiment of Nancy Sinatra and Lee Hazlewood, while simultaneously channeling Dusty Springfield and a few others. Saturday evening or Sunday morning is of no consequence, as shakedowns like “Mercy,” will certainly inspire your spirit with a bit more mojo; while the slow scorching heat of “Hanging On Too Long,” might be just enough to get your life out of an all too familiar funk before a new week begins.
