Fanny Lumsden’s Real Class Act is sung simply and stitched through with the intimate detail of a life.
Themes of growing up, fitting in and trying not to get knocked up make up an interesting collection of tales for listeners who like to pay attention to the lyrics. Each track elucidates the colourful life that inhabits the songs a little more.
Such interesting lyrics are sung and listened to with apparent ease. The folksy tone talks to its listeners, it gives them anecdotes that it has told before all while keeping the tone light around some difficult issues.
It doesn’t demand mental effort and it does not surround the listener, it comes from one side like one half of a conversation overheard from another room. The more the listener hears of Lumsden’s cheeky tales the more they will press their ear up to door.
