Here's a young lad from that there Portico Quartet making a break for the big time with this very slick solo single. Now he's on his own he's making quiet music with his guitar, a slight Spanish feel to it, a bit of a Paolo Nutini thing going on with his voice but more mumbly.
On the A side here we've got a well-polished studio pop number. The combination of the song about a song a mother sings to her child and the music video I just saw of children riding horses on a sunshiney beach somewhere conspire to give it a bit of a gap-year-enlightenment sort of feel which only intensifies when you turn the record over and discover a hushed version of previous single 'Nitrous' played in a church in which he goes into a little bit of 'You're Not Alone' by Olive in a totally deadpan Nizlopi kind of way.
It's earnest, it's naive, it'll probably be on an episode of Skins at some point; this chap is heading straight for the top and there's nothing you or I can do about it.
