Let England Shake (3:09)

Cover of Let England Shake

From Let England Shake and 1 other release

Harvey told Andrew Marr this song is an example of Let England Shake where she “was looking outwards a lot more.” She added: “I think a lot of my work has often been about the interior, the emotional, what happens inside oneself. This time I’ve just been looking out, so it’s not only to do with taking a look at England, but taking a look at the world and what’s happening in the current day world affairs. But always trying to come from the human point of view because I don’t feel qualified to sing from a political standpoint.”

    Took a few listens. But like White Chalk I am liking it more with each listen. Very catchy.

    I find her so hypnotic... and I'm not just talking about her vocals on this.

    Second listen through, and PJ's high-pitched vocals still sounds a bit weird. Maybe third time around I'll get used to it.
