Amazing debuts, London buses, three come at once etc. etc. I’m very impressed with how today’s features are shaping up; Mayfly, Hadleigh Wild and Charles are all exciting newcomers, they’re also all London inhabitants. It’s an amazing time to be based in the capital with inspiration seemingly around every corner. (I can’t wait to move back in July and get my production game going back at home.)
When was the last time you heard a voice that truly struck you as a unique force? Well… that time is now. Charles croons, he really croons, in a manner that pricks your ears and demands you take notice.
As Charles notes: “Red.Green.Gold was written whilst I was living in China over the summer. It’s about the push and pull effect of a long distance relationship and the constant battle of my mind getting carried away.”
The tone seems effortless, floating atop a neo-funk foundation that keeps you nodding. I find it hard to believe that anyone aside from Charles could make the words “red, green and gold” feel so sensual.
