Moody electro-soul-jazz newcomer Eliza Hull bewitches with atmospherics.

Female artists have been doing some arresting, sophisticated things with electronica and soul and jazz  recently, and now Melbourne singer Eliza Hull has coalesced years of familiar sounds into her debut album Hourglass.

You can hear the aching, trembling voice of a wounded torch singer, the creeping, slinky electro beats of the ‘90s, as well as the swelling swoon of dark jazz strings.

Put them together and take them apart and Hull’s first two solo songs ‘Five’ and ‘Sing You A Song’ somehow sit comfortably together.

‘Five’ is a dark electro-pop dream. ‘Sing You A Song’ is a groaning, tear-stained lament. But they are united by her beguiling voice.

The album features performances from members of The Cat Empire, Texture Like Sun and Sans Gras and was produced by Jonathan Steer and Leigh Fisher, who have worked with Gypsy And The Cat.

While Hourglass is her solo debut, Hull has certainly paid her dues in band Describe Eliza and in roadtesting his self-penned songs, putting together a nine-piece backing band for her recent single launches.

Hourglass is due for a release in 2012 and her site is preparing for a relaunch but the first two songs are too good to ignore.  Listen below, then keep an eye out for her.
