Poetry and Poise: Elvis Costello

It was my pleasure to review Elvis Costellos’ new album, Hey Clockface, out on October 30th.

“A work of examination and reflection, Hey Clockface has the feel of a dusty, discovered journal providing insight into some of the more personal moments of Costello’s life … With gorgeous melodies and colourful chord changes reminiscent of poignant moments in Broadway musicals, there’s a nostalgic sense that we’ve heard these songs before … Costello takes the opportunity to offer up gentler moments of vulnerability and fragility – the occasional crack in his falsetto, a vibrato so tender it would make an iron bar weep.”
