Cicero Buck – Humbucky

Two years on from first album Delicate Shades Of Grey, Anglo-American duo Cicero Buck return with a more confident set of folk-pop songs. Songwriter/vocalist Kris Wilkinson is particularly effervescent on the tough “Gonna Fly” and the rippling Nashville skiffle of “Little Songbird”, while Muscle Shoals veteran Jack Peck adds brass to the dusty twang of “Black Road”. Wilkinson (despite the Yankee blood) sounds very English in her Sandy Denny-like delivery, while partner Joe (ex-The Lover Speaks) Hughes adds bass, background vocals and a stripped reworking of his own “No More I Love Yous” (a huge ’90s hit for Annie Lennox). Fresh and feisty.
