NEW MUSIC: Cold Specks – Holland
by Winston "Stone" Ford
Enter Cold Specks. From the first note I was entranced with her voice, a low, raspy, gritty sound that makes her stand out from others. Her latest single, Holland (choice line: Amsterdamn, God Damn) is a low-key, deeply personal effort rooted in the blues of the Deep South. The Toronto born, London bred artist is inspired by such greats as Mahalia Jackson Sister Rosetta Tharpe and it shows.
