These soon-to-be Summer nights call for a sing-along around an open bonfire, but not to Wonderwall.
The past few years, our options for a sing-song have widened – and whilst many opt for the likes of Ben Howard or Gabrielle Aplin, Joe Hicks is the new kid on the block.
Talk To Me is the first arrival since his debut Best Clothes EP. Boasting the same soundscape we first fell for, this time though, a little less produced and a little more untouched. A tidy track stripped down to the basics, it hones a classic, simple backdrop infused with Hicks’ hypnotic vocals.
‘Cause’ I feel loved, say my name and I feel loved,’ the lyrics are lustful, longing for another dose of love; pressed against the rustic instrumentation, each word is worth a thousand.
