It's pretty likely that at least one person in the last year told you about Jesse Ware, the soulful British chanteuse known best for her sensuous hit "Wildest Moments". Along with Bebe Black, Emelie Sande, and Kyla la Grange, Ware is part of the never ending British lady invasion that we are welcoming to our shores. She's a super kick ass chick who loves whole foods, likes it Animal Style and has been called the missing link between "Adele, SBTRKT, and Sade". I love how her voice transitions from quiet painful solemnity to lung-burstingly powerful in a single breath. "Wildest Moments" is one of those tracks that you listen to over and over and over again while replaying those moments in your life you hope to never forget. Its an emotionally evocative tune and the track "Sweet Talk" is the perfect follow up; bringing a little restrained pop lightness to her repertoire. Plus the video is completely adorable I can only hope to one day be as cool as these kids are right now. A shout out goes to the kids that show up wearing sunglasses half way through the video, just to stand there. All cool and stuff.
