If Elbow made electronically influenced broken beats they would sound like STEVE MASON’s ‘Understand My Heart’. Now baring in mind I ABSOLUTELY LOVE both Elbow and Electronic beats you won’t be surprised to hear I’m rather partial to this track.
We’ve mentioned unsigned Nottingham band DOG IS DEAD a few times on Brand Nu over the last twelve months and now the momentum seems to be building as the blogosphere recognises their brilliance. Getting hyped online and now with a first single on the way they’ve written another beauty in the form of the Pop Gospel Destroyer ‘Glockenspiel Song’. Out in June.
COURTNEY ALEXANDER is a brand new artist being championed by that foremost supporter of the UK urban scene – BBC Radio London! Discovered him on their Introducing Show, real poignancy to this track, quite eerie too. Whilst Dizzee now embraces such deepness as ‘Disco, Disco, Disco’ Courtney reminds us there are plenty of urban poets still out there with lots to say and share.
