Aqualung | Eggshells (ft. Lianne La Havas) Video

Matthew Hales (aka Aqualung) may have said he’d never record under the moniker again, but he’s back with his seventh record as such. He streamed an early single, “Eggshells”, featuring the feathery beautiful voice of Lianne La Havas. Now there’s a video for it. Honestly, I’m neither here nor there in regard to the video, but the track is a sexy blend of the digital and soulful. It’s piano-based, light, and the vocal pitch distortion will recall some James Blake. Okay, it’s not re-writing the music world, but it is sweet and smooth. It’s worth a listen just to hear La Havas break it down in the second half of the song: “Big black cloud / I’m back here, again / Just hangin’ around and around and around / Till I can’t see your face no more.” — David. D. Robbins Jr.
