FIRST PRESS: Jetta unleashes a big sound from a single source

Every so often, the Free iTunes Single of the Week is actually decent. This week is one of those weeks


Jetta, a former back-up singer for people like Sift Thru favorite Paloma Faith, just released her debut EP Start a Riot. To celebrate, she's offering up the title track for free. 

This is worth the time to login to iTunes, even if you never do. Don't let the 3 star review scare you, as the reviews for free singles are usually written by Justin Bieber fans or indie snobs. This is a big song that breathes, featuring a vocalist who has the pipes to carry off the adjective "big." There's crunchy guitars, reverb, and a fantastic build up. Think The xx and Florence + The Machine, but all of the sound coming from one talented, gorgeous woman.
