Fingertips is an entirely more adult release than 2013’s This Music – a collected rehash of The Voice performances – and the Bodies EP of 2014, with the maturity being felt in both the music and lyrical content – one need look no further than the intriguing exploration of infidelity that is the titular Fingertips to illustrate this.  Working collaboratively with producer Andy Mak, songwriter Gossling, and guitarist and songwriter Thom Mak, Vera Blue delivers a compelling blend of electro-pop and folk-pop.  Those who are folk averse can relax in the knowledge that, with the exception of Patterns, the folk elements are confined to Pavey’s vocals although, to be honest, the folky lilt is what truly makes the vocal delivery throughout.
