Minimal recording equipment and a collaboration with contemporary Jack Cookson are just some of the elements that contribute to Cécile’s ‘Ten Past Twelve’, the intimate debut from the Bristol-via-France singer-songwriter.
Inspired aptly by a combination of British and French culture, the EP takes the form of a harmonious, acoustic effort, drawing delicate vocal comparisons that range from from Nina Nesbitt to Gabrielle Aplin. While ‘La Dérive’ shares an insight into her native language, ‘Golden Sand’ and ‘Avalanche’ emphasise her vocals best, with the help of simplistic melodies and touching lyricism. Despite a weak start, ‘Ten Past Twelve’ progresses into a clever and highly emotive piece of work. Needless to say, Cécile certainly has potential.
