Rachael Dadd

Rachael Dadd is surely a modern-day Renaissance woman. As well as performing solo, she is one half of The Hand and Whalebone Polly; she also sews textiles, makes prints, and designed a hand-printed linocut cover for her new mini album, Moth In The Motor. At the first blush of ‘Table’ it seems like the multifaceted artist might have spread her talents a little too thin. However, on subsequent listens the song sneaks into your brain on its tiptoes and just won’t leave. The simple piano back-and-forth, muted drums and Dadd’s breathy vocals combine to a subtly memorable anthem. Give it a chance and you’ll find yourself humming the refrain for the rest of the day: “Round tables and square windows, these are the things to keep their shape.” MP3 and video, directed by Rachael’s sister Betsy, below the jump.
