Cleo Sol – “Teardrop” | New Music


Cleo Sol combines her own flavour with two of the most well-covered/interpolated songs of the last few decades, Massive Attack‘s “Teardrop” and The Verve‘s “Bitter Sweet Symphony”.

“Teardrop” is the second in a series of free downloads recently released by Sol, following the original track “Borderline”. On “Teardrop” Cleo Sol showcases her crisp, smooth vocals, effortlessly enunciating the iconic lines from both songs. The mash-up of both tracks seems slightly unnecessary, however, splicing freely from one to another without ever reaching a sense of coherence or completion. Fans of both songs will be sure to enjoy the mix though and I’m eager to hear more material from the promising artist, hopefully continuing in the same infectiously upbeat vein of “Borderline”.
