Words: Saam Das
Ellen Murphy seems to be on a bit of a roll, continuing her rich collaboration with Zero 7's Henry Binns on 'Perfect High'. The track follows 'Mountain', a beautiful tribute to Murphy/Only Girl's fiancé who recently recovered from a traumatic brain injury. 'Perfect High' shares some of the RnB influence of that track, have a listen below.
The new track again seems to be an ode to Murphy's other half, with lyrics like "you are my destiny". Sure, it may fall a little on the clichéd side but there's something refreshingly honest about 'Perfect High'. It certainly doesn't seem like a cynical, hit-making exercise. And even if it wasn't, that's nothing to worry about - simply allow Murphy's impassioned vocal and infectious melodies to wash over you.
