Album Review: Look Closer by Saun & Starr

Excellent, Based on 2 Critics

Paste Magazine - 83
Based on rating 8.3/10

One has to wonder, the way things are going over at Daptone, if in five years’ time we’ll be listening to the brand new debut album from “those backup singers for Saun & Starr.” Call it nepotism, perhaps, but musical nepotism of the best possible kind. Saundra Williams and Starr Duncan Lowe are the latest homegrown talents to rise to the top of the New York label, which has excelled with the philosophy of late bloomers and overlooked artists. You certainly can’t argue with the results, looking at the last decade from Charles Bradley or Sharon Jones.

Opinion: Fairly Good

Saundra Williams and Starr Duncan Lowe have spent the past seven years providing backup vocal support to the force of nature known as Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings, but the pair’s work together goes back to the 1980s. That explains the duo’s chemistry and ability – there’s no mistaking the sound of artists who’ve essentially grown up singing together. It’s also no surprise that Look Closer sits in a similar wheelhouse as most Daptone projects, working a familiar vein of late ’60s/early ’70s soul.
