Single Review: Lissie – ‘Cuckoo’

2 min read

Smoky voiced Illinois singer Lissie’s second single When I’m Alone seems to have been on constant radio rotation over these past few summer weeks with her debut album Catching A Tiger proving to be one of the seasons favorite releases.

LissieCuckooBlessed with a stunning and unassisted voice similar to the distinct whisperings of Fleetwood Mac legend Stevie Nicks, Lissie is one from a very small batch of singers with genuine talent and an undeniable ability in writing infectious Americana folk/pop tracks that the world is just lapping up.

The singer is about to release her second single from Catching A Tiger titled Cuckoo and it is a track that instantly grows on you. Wishing I had a car, long flowing locks and a highway close by the single is a big, acoustically heavy, feel good track for the freckled beauty with a deep bass line filtered beneath a mesmerizing track of infectious hooks and a gorgeous melody.

Though the record is full of songs that jump out as potential singles, Cuckoo is a good choice of single release from a triumphant album delivered by a singer we will be seeing a lot more of this year. For the physical copy purchasing fans a treat is delivered in the form of the sought after blues infused and haunting cover of Lady Gaga’s Bad Romance.

Cuckoo is set to pick up where When I’m Alone left us and is the perfect summer sing along anthem.
