Joel Corry & Tom Grennan - Lionheart (Fearless)
I didn't think Joel Corry would ever grace this blog. He's just not my bag. But 'Lionheart' has caused such an extreme case of PTSD that I need to write about it to cleanse myself. Back in the mid-90s, Faithless released 'Insomnia'. They were the first band I remember using that Pizzicato string stab. Hundreds of copycat tracks inevitably followed, and for a couple of years, I couldn't listen to a promo without THAT sound appearing on every other track... and here it is again. I thought the days of Sash and DJ Quicksilver were behind me. But, alas, no.
