Released: 22nd May 2006.
Releasing her fifth single in the UK, this is likely to give Nerina her first Top 40 hit, and about time too. Her 2001 debut album "Dear Frustrated Superstar" created a buzz, although it dropped like a brick. Her latest album "Fires" has already had two singles, but both came and went without much fuss. However thanks to a re-launch of the album, "Everybody's Gone To War" has been doing well on airplay and looks set to reach the Top 10. Great news for a young talent with a beautiful voice who is easily as good as KT Tunstall and far more entertaining than Dido.
From her album "Fires", Nerina Pallot breaks through with a jaunty, radio-friendly rock/pop number, that with her vocals sounds quite generic and ordinary. Beneath "Everybody's Gone To War", however, the lyrics are much more sophisticated and mature than you'd expect, helping to add a new dimension to the song.
