Totally (ep)worth the wait

I've just stumbled across the new single by London-based singer Mary Epworth. I say new, but in fact Black Doe has been out twice before - in 2009 and 2010. But just because we all missed it first time round, it doesn't mean we should ignore it now.

Black Doe starts off with a simple plucked banjo and an unsettling lyric about being watched by a stranger until, around 1:30, someone chucks a drum kit down the staircase and all hell breaks loose. It'll make your bones shake, your knees knock and your hair stand on end like Zayn out of One Direction.

It may help to know that Mary is the sister of Florence & The Machine producer Paul Epworth. Gothic psychedelia and spooky melodrama are clearly a family trait.
