Eliza Doolittle: 'Big When I Was Little' - Single review

Eliza Doolittle 'Big When I Was Little' single pack shot.
Just like Instagram filters and movie montages, nostalgia makes everything seem so much better than it actually was. It's a tack Eliza Doolittle uses on her new single 'Big When I Was Little', which hears her reminiscing of a time when cassettes were the music format of choice, Malcolm In The Middle was everyone's favourite tea time viewing and Posh Spice was still a popstar.

While the singer recently flirted with '90s sounds on her Disclosure collaboration, the retro references are kept strictly in the lyrics for her own outing as she daydreams over her trademark blend of jazzy brass and swaying melodies. "Oh this box is haunting me/ I can't throw it away/ School reports and birthday cards/ Feels like yesterday," she laments, echoing the bouncy flow of her popular hit 'Pack Up'. It's a charming celebration of hazy days past, but suffers from Eliza Doolittle barely moving forward.
