Riff: She & Him – “Turn To White”

May 7, 2013

Racing to finish, I never think before I run/To the good and wicked things you do

from Turn To White lyrics by She & Him

Proof that the duo are occasionally capable of thinking outside the ‘deliberately twee’ box, this stripped-back ditty is a wistful reflection on an equally ‘good & wicked’ relationship that cleverly fuses together beachside folk-pop with jazz-bar soul to beguiling effect; [LISTEN].
