Banoffee packshotLook At Us Now Dad is explicitly sympathetic; every part seems designed to reach out to the listener.

The interludes punctuating the record give it the feeling of a play, shifting the sets between acts while Banoffee soliloquises through the fourth wall. Although these are more direct than the other tracks, it’s not by much: Banoffee’s lyrics are generous in making the feelings plain, and insofar as they’re autobiographical, she makes plenty of room for the listener.

Intimate, private, melancholy but embracing, Look At Us Now Dad will get in your heart.

Look At Us Now Dad by Banoffee is out February 21 via Dot Dash/Remote Control.
