TREBLE & REVERB
Aaradhna
(Dawn Raid/Universal)

There are some very astute music critics in New Zealand.  I'm not one of them. 

I'm a music lover and reviewer and every now and then a record comes along that so entrances me that I lose any sense of objectivity and simply get swept up in the moment as a giddy fan. 

Treble & Reverb has done that to me.  I'm in love with the simple, exquisitely crafted magic of songs such as Wake Up, Fire Burning Love and Great Man, with their giddy swinging sixties pop nuances and Aaradhna's bold, sassy and soulful vocals, which fill the void left by Amy Winehouse. 

Dawn Raid magicians Brotha D and Andy Murnane have, proverbially speaking, pulled the retro rabbit out of the hat. 

I'll happily lead the Aaradhna chorus and predict Treble & Reverb will reverb around the world.
