Tracklist: Roxy Rawson - Fingers

What do you expect someone called Roxy Rawson to sound like? Wrong. Hitchin-raised Rawson, compared to Joanna Newsom and Regina Spektor by the Independent On Sunday as much we suspect for her leaping, swooping, occasionally properly falsetto vocals, is a conservatoire trained violinist and if she hasn't got the grand arrangement ambitiousness of an Owen Pallett or Marques Toliver yet she can conjure plucked intimacy and soaring grandiosity within the space of this one song. Eccentric, to a degree, but also spellbinding.
