BEC Sandridge has undergone a transformation and it’s all positive. While her debut EP Wild Heart (2013) displayed an intriguing voice, her atmospheric folk hardly shouted originality or exuberance. However, her second EP In The Fog boasts both in spades. Sandridge has ditched folk for electro indie-pop, which bears influences from Kate Bush and Blondie.
The latest single High Tide breezes along like Fleetwood Mac, while the cutting You’re A F—king Joke employs a sinister groove. The only other songs not previously released are the synth-heavy ballad I Drove All Night and I Keep Running Back, which clings closely to her folk roots. A full album would have been preferable, but Sandridge has taken the quality over quantity approach.
