Lacuna

(Dehisce Records 26/01/04)

There is indeed a sizable loophole that exists between the swooning pop sound of Christina Aguilera and the enigmatic, little girl lost style of Bjork. Wolverhampton’s Carina Round boldly steps into the void with this poignant, bitter and instrumentally snazzy track extracted from her well received debut album ‘The Disconnection’. The song creeps along at first with Carina’s slow and stern vocals tugging at the heart strings of the listener, as she tells the tale of the gaping hole left by feelings of loss and rejection. Then the track builds up to a crescendo of quick fire vocals and crashing instrumentals
