Smoky Voice, Suave Beat

In its latest, Swing Out Sister incorporates Latin rhythms and reliable lyrics

Though it has been seven years since the U.K.’s Swing Out Sister had a U.S. release, it only takes a single listen to see what they’ve spent their time doing.

Not since the golden sounds of Astrud Gilberto has a singer seized upon such a breezy essence of soulful, windswept beaches in her every note. With “Where Our Love Grows,” Swing Out Sister captures the best of Burt Bacharach-styled love songs, chi-chi cocktail party music and lazy Sunday afternoon jazz, bottling the whole shebang into one highly mature release.
