Amiel - Kick Those Expectations  

You may not think you've heard anything by Amiel before, but you probably have. She was the singer on Puretone's hit single Addicted To Bass and the much acer follow-up Stuck In A Groove and she sang a song called Meet Me In The Red Room on the soundtrack of Moulin Rouge. She released her first solo album in 2003 and had some success with the brilliant singles Lovesong and Obsession (I Love You) in her home country of Australia and in some of Europe and Asia, particularly Germany and Japan. This is a brand new song from her second album, These Ties, which is out now. Bizarrely, it has a rapper in it saying "Can I kick it?", but Amiel's lovely voice more than makes up for it. The resulting sound is reminiscent of Tom's Diner by Suzanne Vega.
