SOFIA RUBINA is an acclaimed jazz/soul singer from Estonia. Big in her homeland, she’s hoping to break out with her new album, ‘I Am Soul’ from which two taster tracks have just been released to make, I suppose, two sides of a single.
The putative A side is ‘Great Life’ – a sweet melding of soul and jazz. It’s an optimistic thing that builds and builds. The “other” side is ‘Home’ which kind of meanders while Ms Rubina’s vocals have a definite touch of the Kate Bush histrionics if you know what I mean. I’ll pass on this one; but would recommend investigating ‘Great Life’.
Both tracks out now via Dreams Of Tomorrow
