Almost Lover (Demo) (Exclusive, Single)
Released: Apr 2007
Label: Virgin Records
The slow reveal of songs from One Cell in the Sea have emphasized A Fine Frenzy singer/songwriter Alison Sudol's ability to write choruses of syrupy, sentimental glory, but with "Almost Lover" she dials down the grandeur. This delicate tune about near-miss love hints at the melody of Stevie Wonder's "Part-Time Lover," but Sudol's pursed-lipped pout gives it a sobering intimacy.
