Performer Notes
  • Personnel: Adam Peters (programming).
  • Liner Note Authors: Niall Lucy; Sally Collins.

A testament to the late singer-songwriter Dave McComb's ability to pen remarkably affecting and catchy tunes, CALENTURE is best embodied by "A Trick of the Light," a shimmering, synth-laden study in pop perfection.
