Gabriella Cilmi – Save The Lies

After her phenomenal UK and Australia hit “Sweet About Me” which was featured at the advertisements of a deodorant that was shown across the world, Australian singer Gabriella Cilmi (pronounced as CHIL-MI) is releasing her second single titled “Save The Lies”. The song is announced as a single through her website and is available for download starting the second week of August 2008. The single will be available via digital download and CD single

Gabriella, a 16 year-old from Melbourne, Australia first came to fame as she hit the #1 spot in the Australian Singles Charts earlier this year becoming the youngest singer ever to hit the #1 spot. She then followed a UK release of her first single “SWEET ABOUT ME” and went straight into the top 40 of the UK Singles Charts. The song started on a slow movement around the charts but eventually made it into the top 10 early in June. The singer who is now based in the UK is going for a full-promotional for the single in the United Kingdom this September.

The track which is taken from her debut album “LESSONS TO BE LEARNED” is incorporated with electronic beats and sort of a retro vibe driven into the melody. She maybe murmuring some of the parts of the song but I think if given the chance it can beat “Sweet about Me” in the chart positions in the UK Singles Charts.

Critics have acclaimed Cilmi’s voice comparable to that of troubled-singer AMY WINEHOUSE but we beg to disagree, there may be a little bit of comparison but nonetheless, Gabriella Cilmi is original on her own and you can definitely distinguish her voice from other singers and of course, she’s one of a kind for her age. Gabriella has a pure talent that is forced to be reckoned with.
