Single Review: Ali Robertson – Something About Your Love

Posted by Greg Murray

Ali Robertson - Something About Your Love
Something About Your Love is the smooth, Chet Faker-esque debut single by Glasgow-operating singer/songwriter Ali Robertson.  The back-bone of the track is a melancholic piano, around which electronic beats and effects swing and swirl seductively.

Robertson’s voice is layered and processed in a way that sounds almost gritty, pulling the track out of ‘100% laid-back’ territory and thrusting it somewhere with a little more bite than your average future-soul debuts.

In the short time since its release on 28th January, Something About Your Love has ticked over a very impressive fourteen thousand plays on SoundCloud, so it looks like Robertson might be one of the first to ride the synthy-wave of internet fame recently created by fellow Scottish song-writer, Kloe.

Ali RobertsonSomething About Your Love is out now via Write Club Music and is currently only available to stream.
