Top Tracks: Annachristie Sapphire – Cut The Line

I always take delight in discovering tracks that blur the line between genres, but I’ve yet to come across a song that blurs a decades long divide in styles the way that this does. Kicking off with a hazy 90s melancholy that recalls the likes of Jeff Buckley or the Smashing Pumpkins, before bursting into dreamy 50s doo-wop, ‘Cut The Line’ shares a superb interplay of light and dark. Not a combination you perhaps consider, but it sure as hell works. Lyrically the song takes the old adage about there being “plenty of fish in the sea” and takes it a step further, as Annachristie contemplates reeling in her love. I feel like this song is ahead of the curve, like it should be the next big trendsetting track. Needless to say, Annachristie is on to a winner with this one.
