Othello Woolf – Keep On

London soul singer/producer makes a welcome return with a swoon of a new song.


Words by: Ruth Saxelby

Othello Woolf wears his heart on his sleeve, puts his all into his brooding soul songs. We’ve been tuned into his mood at Dummy since his debut single Stand a couple of years back. Keep On is his latest, and the first taste of a new album due early next year. Taut between those sharp-as-a-tack finger clicks and a bright-eyed piano loop, it builds to a swoon with but the sparsest of elements. Woolf sounds more assured than ever, which suggests good things for 2013.
