Here’s some strident indie-folk business from Kiran Leonard, a big-voiced singer-songwriter with a mournful voice but quite energetic arrangements. It's on Hand of Glory who also did that ace Mary Epworth single the other week. I’m particularly enjoying the B-side ‘Port-Aine’ where Leonard takes things down a notch with acoustic guitar, accordion, banjo and drums performing a heartfelt little number which has the charming delivery and shuffly bounce of some early Frames stuff.

 

The A side is a perky piano-led number with an almost music hall feel which brings to mind Hawksley Workman's first record. It’s all loud staccato blasts of melody and bold dramatic vocals, a little lacking in subtlety but certainly not enthusiasm, and as he shows on the B side, when he does rein himself in a little he’s capable of something quite lovely. And now I find out he’s only 18? Good grief. That fact was not taken into account when writing this review, this is remarkably mature stuff for his age, this lad is going to be massive isn’t he?
