Honey Gentry releases the appropriately-titled double A-side Valentine / Ghosts Of Lovers Past today, two evocative songs that intimately explore the inner workings of the mind when faced with relationships and which showcase an expressive voice that accentuates the details and draws you in.
Valentine has a tight haunting quality, the simple electronic backing creating a sense of unease yet giving Honey space for her vocals to take centre stage as she declares "free me to forget me, free me to free yourself" as she battles with demons that plague her relationship commitments.
Ghost Of Lovers Past is similarly inward-looking, Honey warning "don't get too close to me" as she reflects on how the past comes to haunt you as you sleep. It's eerily unsettling from the start to the ending where the music drops away and there's just the sound of birds tweeting.
