Having heard this sophomore single from debut album Debris, it’s not at all surprising to learn that Maria Jordan has been labelled as ‘One To Watch’ by BBC Introducing. Her sound is polished, her genre is very much in the zeitgeist at the moment, and this song has a genuine quality about it.
A free flowing country pop effort, What You Gonna Do sees Jordan explore new laid back territory after the punchier sound of debut Better Than Nothing. Jordan has supported some top artists, including Newton Faulkner and The Script, and it’s hard to deny her mass appeal. The production on this record is clear as day, with no room for muddying the waters when it comes to Jordan’s excellent vocal.
It’s arguable that the previous single has more impact, but this is still part of a stellar opening pair from Maria Jordan.
What You Gonna Do is released on 25th Feb 2013 by JTC Records.
