REVIEW | Josephine Sillars: Vincent

Over the course of 2015, we have had the opportunity to discover an array of incredible singer-songwriters, and one that certainly stood out from the pack is Josephine Sillars.

She first impressed us greatly this past summer with her debut EP – Ripped From The Wire Spine. In fact, we loved it so much it earned an nomination for our Solo Record Of The Year award.

But just as the year is on the way out, she has been kind enough to provide us all with a new single entitled Vincent.

This is a dazzling tune driven by a warm, swell melody that features Jo’s trademark crisp vocals and engaging piano work, in addition to a simple yet catchy backing drum beat and a chorus which serves as a captivating hook.

But for sure the highlight of the track has to be the display of memorable and incredibly creative lyrics which, as the title suggests, make reference to a certain Mr Van Gogh; a testament to Jo’s adept songwriting abilities.

2015 has been quite the year for this young lass, and if she continues to deliver more high-quality material just like this single, then 2016 is looking to be even better for one of Scotland’s finest solo artists.
