Tortured Soul - Did You Miss Me? (Dôme)

Tortured Soul made their name as a ‘live house’ group, ditching the samplers, automated synths and programmed percussion for songwriting and real instrumentation in the form of keys, bass and drums. Formed in 2000, the group may be rooted in club culture, but their musicianship, hot live shows and songwriting ability gives them much broader appeal than many of their clubbing contemporaries. Here, they bring us their second LP, which dips its toes in various musical waters. It features choice moments such as the relieved Home To You, a matter of fact number entitled Another Lover and the fizzing guitar goo of Special Lady. Did You Miss Me? Is much more than just a ‘live house’ album.
