Kirsty McGee – Honeysuckle

There’s a physicality to her descriptions of deep desire and romance?licking faces, looking at hair, feeling bones through skin?that sets McGee apart from more feyly folky singer-songwriters. A strong, unfussy voice, confident, careful arrangements and an earthy affinity for barroom abandon and bad-to-know boys also keep her just the right side of sappiness, and make her one to watch.
