Helen Boulding – Crooked Tooth

Acclaimed Sheffield-born singer-songwriter Helen Boulding releases her second album ‘Calling All Angels’ on 16th July 2012. Co-written with and produced by Pete Glenister (Alison Moyet, Kirsty MacColl) the ten tracks take her trademark Joni Mitchell-influence vocal and throw in influences like Bat For Lashes, Sneaker Pimps, Dubstar and the Cardigans to create a more synth-tinged sound. ‘Every song would stand up on piano and guitar,’ says Helen. ‘The difference between this and [the Youth-produced] first album is that here the production in some ways juxtaposes the classic songs, & somehow makes them particularly emotional & exciting.’ And lead single ‘The Innocents’ (Out June 25th) is testament to this: a shimmering slice of grown-up pop, with soaring backing vocals, it’s as brilliant as Sharleen Spiteri guest-vocalling on a Motiv8 classic (remixed, perhaps, by Saint Etienne). ‘There’s nothing between any of us,’ says Helen. ‘We were all born innocent and that’s who we really are. The song is just about seeing the innocence and child in everyone.’
