Candie Payne – By Tomorrow

Candie Payne hails form Liverpool and has that revival Motown sound I love, think Amy Winehouse and The Pipettes meets St. Etienne.   This track would fit nicely on a James bond sound track, I’m of course taking about a 1960’s Sean Connery, “BOND, JAMES BOND” version.

This track is taken off of Mocean Workers fifth album called appropriately enough, “Cinco De Mowo
