Dark Globe feat Amanda Ghost - Break My World (Island)
UK release date: 19 April 2004
A nocturnal dancefloor track perfect for the following scene: a girl running through a dark tunnel at night. It's shadowy and dank. Her relationship has gone cold and what she's just confronted him with still rings in her head.
Behind a bass-driven industrial drum machine and a high liquidy synth, Amanda Ghost's throaty emotive voice sings lines such as: "After all these years your heart's so cold to me / Give me all the things that you don't need." Then it all crescendos into the searing chorus of, "Break my world."
This first single from Dark Globe's forthcoming album, out this summer, sounds at first like a cheap chart house track but ends up as an alarmingly evocative and infectious song. Thumbs up.
