Song of the Week – Written In The Water

Written in the Water – Gin Wigmore

Yippee!! Gin Wigmore is back with a vengeance!!

This sassy, distinctive and mighty talented Kiwi is one hell of a song writer and her latest track Written in the Water is yet another example of this.

The track is so snappy and upbeat you want to click your fingers along to it and do some ridiculous 1920s style jive. With a tap tap tap on the piano, a deep blast on the saxophone, many trumpets blaring and a drum beat that’s hard to keep up with – the song builds up layer upon layer. As it progresses the repetition helps to pick up the tempo for the electric chorus. Gin’s famously unique voice powers over the top of this big-band style track and shines.

Written In The Water features on Gin Wigmore’s new album Blood and Bone which is due out on the 26th.

She’ll tour New Zealand the following week:

Auckland – Wednesday 1st July, King’s Arms

Wellington – Friday 3rd July, Bodega

Christchurch – Saturday 4th July, CPSA

I've decided it's time for me to stop pestering my friends and family every time I want to rant or rave about the latest goings on in the music world so here I am. I hope you'll enjoy my Pip Squeaks.
