You’ve got to hand it to Gabriella Cilmi. The ‘Sweet About Me’ songstress was directed down a decidedly more pop path for her last album ‘Ten’ with mixed results… yes, there were some cracking good pop songs contained on it but no, on the whole the pop path didn’t really lead to more commercial success.
So she’s cunningly ditched the dance/pop and gone back to what she does best with her new independent album ‘The Sting’, crafting a series of more organic pop songs that focus a little less on the production and more on the voice that had her captivating her audience in the first place.
And new single ‘Symmetry’ is a great example of what to expect from the LP (which is out now).
The studio-based clip, though obviously done to a strict budget, is rather stylish – and Gab looks effortlessly cute with her new Pixie haircut as she plays to the camera in her double-dose of glamorous polar-opposite outfits.
