'Don't Call Me Angel'   

-  Label: 'Belltown Records'
-  Genre: 'Alt/Country' -  Release Date: '12th October 2018'

Our Rating:
Hilary Scott's PR informs us that she "is Influenced by the state of our world" but the state of her love life seems to a more immediate concern.

This the topic of all ten run of the mill country-pop songs, which includes a de-camped, de-funked version of Prince's Kiss.

The brooding title track warns admirers to remember that she's not just a pretty face: "Don't call me angel - I never looked good in white".

She gamely attempts to avoid the platitudes that are so typical of saccharine ballads but the metaphors she chooses don't exactly make the relationships sound too appealing.

She likens herself to a package in Make It Right ("You know how to tie me up when I've come undone") and being in love is a medical condition in Not Used To Being Used To ("I'm a fever baby and you are the pill")

Some other details sound just plain creepy. In Heartless she sings of "The smell of you in my hair, your fingerprints on my skin".

Instead of selling the idea of romance, this is a set of songs that make celibacy seem an appealing option.
