Artist: Band: Elizabeth & The Catapult CD Review: Genre: Adult Alternative Sounds Like: Nelly Furtado/Sara Bareilles Technical Grade: 9 Production/Musicianship Grade: 10 Commercial Value: 10 Overall Talent Level: 10 Songwriting Skills: 10 Performance Skill: 10 Best Songs: Single Weakness: None CD Review: This hot single was submitted from Crystal Top Music as a part of a compilation featuring eleven distinct artists. One of the acts, Elizabeth & The Catapult, hit the commercial target (whether they were trying to or not) with this radio-friendly, hook-filled, avante garde track. It refreshingly covers new subject material with its catchy lyrics about a woman who informs her lover that if he wants a girl to be his mother, he needs to go find another. Elizabeth's powerful vocal performance is enhanced by an avante garde arrangement that's melodically draped over a snazzy, concise, up-tempo production which is sure to resonate with teens and adults. Instant radio hit, just add airplay.
