Toria Wooff’s new single ‘James Edward‘ has a resolutely Seventies feel to it – but woozy folk-country songs are not the only string to Toria Woof’s bow as the Lancashire based musician is also a painter, a poet and a storyteller. That’s a busy schedule.
‘James Edward‘ tells a tale of a tentative love affair, revolving around discovered portents – a magical “seven kisses on my cheek“, the freedom to travel alone and the recognition that “you act like leaving is ok” and the ghost of a doubt with the thought that there’s a Dansette back home which “plays songs for someone else“. Put these clues together and try and piece together what’s going on, as a chill wind blows again.
