We told you a few weeks ago about the new digital single by Lia Pamina, “Better Off Without You”, and now we’re here to introduce, as we told you we would, another new single. This time, it’s in 7” (500-copy numbered-limited-edition, transparent vinyl) format, starring the song “Sycamore Tree”, one of the best songs on her fantastic debut album “Love Is Enough”, and backed by three previously unreleased songs composed – like the majority of the album – by Joe Moore (THE YEARNING, THE PERFECT KISS).

“Sycamore Tree” is exquisite. The evanescent keyboards remind us of bands like THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA and BROADCAST, while the classic spirit, the percussive bass and the clavichord take us to the psychedelic period of THE BEACH BOYS. Marvelous. “Nobody's Baby” fits into the sadder, more melancholic part that was already present on the album. Again, the clavichord and the piano take the lead on a song with baroque airs, which could perfectly be sung by a saddened, solitary Sylvie Vartan, while she sits by the window on a rainy evening. Once again, the elegance of Joe Moore’s arrangements takes things to the highest emotional levels. The B-side opens with spirit and pluck with “Wrap Your Love Around My Heart”, a pop-soul song with clear echoes of Dusty Springfield. And to wrap things up, “One Step” returns to the psychedelic, spacey airs of the first song, but moving more towards the “lounge” spirit of Hollywood singers like Doris Day. This is definitely a single that pays homage to a specific sound, made with great taste, celestially arranged, and that is capable of waking up the whole world’s melancholy in the sweetest way.

And as per usual, the video is directed by Coral and Javi of BAND À PART – the third leg of this infallible formula. Joe Moore’s songs and production, Lia Pamina’s glamour and delicious voice, and Coral and Javi’s evocative images.

Track Name: Sycamore Tree
I'm going down to the Sycamore tree
I bet you won't be far behind me
Follow me down to the Sycamore tree
Oh baby that's where you will find me

Shh, don't make a sound
It's our secret we have found
Let's go down to the Sycamore tree
Where there's nobody else around

Take me down to the Sycamore tree
I want to feel your arms around me
Kiss me under the Sycamore tree
I want to feel your love surround me

Shh, don't make a sound
Let's keep both feet on the ground
Let's go down to the Sycamore tree
Where there's nobody else around
Track Name: Nobody’s Baby
I've been here since yesterday
When you left and went away
To a place that I can't be
Now I'm a mess, just look at me

I'm nobody's baby
Nobody's girl
Nobody's darling
Now you're out of my world

Read your note a thousand times
Trying to read between the lines
Yet what is left that I can do
But see a world through tones of blue?

I'm nobody's baby
Nobody's girl
Nobody's darling
Now you're out of my world

I'm nobody's baby
Nobody's girl
Nobody's darling
Now you're out of my world
Track Name: Wrap Your Love Around My Heart
So when I'm feeling lost and I am all on my own
You always show, the way to go
And when I have to say goodbye or put down the phone
You always know, I love you so

'Cause every time it seems as if I'm falling apart
You wrap your love around my heart

So when I'm feeling down about the way that I am
You always see, the good in me
And when I feel like giving up and life is a scam
You always see, the way to be

'Cause just when all the chaos is beginning to start
You wrap your love around my heart

When I have my doubts you make me sure
And when I'm inside out you're so secure
I don't want to live without your love so wrap it right around my heart

'Cause every time it seems as if I'm falling apart
You wrap your love around my heart
'Cause every time it seems as if I'm falling apart
You wrap your love around my heart
Track Name: One Step
One step closer to you
I am one kiss from making it two
I keep dreaming of more
But I'm one step closer than I was before

One chance is all that I need
And just one glance would give me a lead
I'm still far from your shore but I'm
One step closer than I was before

Am I one step closer today
Or two steps further away?
One chance, when will it be?
One dance could be waiting for me?

Am I one step closer today
Or two steps further away?
One chance, when will it be?
One dance could be waiting for me?

One step closer to you
I am one kiss from making it two
I keep dreaming of more
But I'm one step closer than I was before
