Philippa Nihill (founding member of the legendary Underground Lovers) has just released a thrilling new single ‘Getaway’, which channels the anthemic style of Burt Bacharach with her own unique dynamism and power. With a chorus break bigger than skies above Australia and a stirring reflective verse, ‘Getaway’ is a majestic single that ebbs and flows like a tide with a celestial burnish.
A rolling piano and distant chorus thread their way around Nihill’s distinctive velvet vocals as the song burns slowly and intensely to reach a crescendo that thunders like an electrical storm, before a seventies-infused guitar solo leads the way out:
Magnificent and pulse-quickening stuff.
This is the second single from her forthcoming new solo album, ‘Find Her Way’ out on Friday, 14 April, and Nihill has just announced the afternoon of Sunday April 30 and the Brunswick Ballroom as the time and place of her album launch.
