Reviews: Half Looking ~ Tip of My Tongue

Half Looking
Artist: Half Looking

CD: Tip of My Tongue

Home: Lansing, Michigan

Style: Rock

Quote: "The vocal blending of those two is every bit as good as that of the Indigo Girls".

Half Looking's debut CD "Tip of My Tongue" will cause everyone who listens to have this band's name on the tips of their tongues. Its sound is infectious, mostly danceable and some of the best rock (male or female) to come along in quite some time.

The Lansing, Michigan quartet stands out immediately in several areas:

One is the dynamic harmony of Hez Naylor and Lisa Corbett. While Hez is the leader, Corbett's silky smooth voice just pours over you as a spooky replica of Natalie Merchant (listen to "Again"). And the vocal blending of those two is every bit as good as that of the Indigo Girls.

Other notable elements are Holly Miller's effortless, silky smooth lead guitar work and the flawless, powerful (yet not overpowering) percussion/drumming of Murray Stewart-Jones laying a solid foundation.

"Slippin'" is perhaps the prime example of this band at its instrumental and vocal best...and, lyrically, perhaps teamwork (Corbett & Naylor) really is best as heard in "Divine," a slow, simple tune featuring Lisa's gorgeous voice: "Your breath on my neck You take the loving lead never hesitate to follow Never hesitate to need...Let the shudder shake take over...Tears stream out like rivers...You're the fire that rushes in ...You're that thing i can't define But I've spent my whole life waiting To close my eyes and see you divine."

Speaking of divine, this group's sound is just that. They may be Half Looking, but be sure they don't catch you just Half Hearing -- they're too good to miss.
