On the first single from her third studio LP Tiger Suit, the Scottish songstress ditches coffee-shop-flavored folk for a big dose of booming beats, electro textures and fuzzed-out bass. It's nice to hear Tunstall stepping out of her comfort zone: "Push That Knot Away" is a rousing, foot-stomping anthem that, while not as earworm-y as her breakout song 'Black Horse and the Cherry Tree,' would easily get a crowd of drunks riled up at the pub. But lyrically, Tunstall is still mired in confessional singer-songwriter clichés that are better suited for a therapist's office: "In the morning when you wake/It is a doorway for you to walk through to become what you make."
