Paint Me in a Corner / Where Are You Now
Now and then you might find yourself painted in a corner. It is usually the case that you can only blame yourself for ending up there. The painter of shapes and words, Nicole Willis has painted herself for the past ten years into the periphery of Helsinki, Finland, only to sing her soul out. Now she’s back at grinding her vocal ax with The Soul Investigators. Approaching the release of their third joined album in the Fall of 2015, it’s time to test the waters with „Paint Me in a Corner“ b/w „Where Are You Now“. Neither of the tracks carries much of a humor element. The first one points its pounding existential finger towards us all, urging for breaking the chains of normality, while the beautiful melancholia of the second track rocks the listener in a mid-tempo groove paradise. These two tracks might be just the thing to kick you in the chest with enough soul in order to get out of the house. Maybe even dance by yourself at a desolate corner of the bar.
