METRONOMY: The Bay.Electronica goes off for a poppy, boppy 80s dance – and doesn’t bother to come back.
BEADY EYE: The Beat Goes On.A more apt name would be The Beatles Go On as it’s got their sound stamped all over it even to the point of a distinct John Lennon ring to the vocals.
THE JOY FORMIDABLE: A Heavy Abacus.If you want to get excited about a band on the strength of a single, then this will give you that untold joy. Bang, crash wallop of powering percussion and passionate yet innocent-sounding vocals make a formidable mix.
BIRDY: Shelter.Dreamy, ethereal version of XX’s Shelter. The power of a voice and piano can sometimes be all-consuming. The teenager’s got a natural X-Factor.
