‘IN YOUR MIND’
Debut album released 6th July on DW Records
‘In Your Mind’ is a complete and joyous affair with an eye for childlike wonder and pop sensibility.
The bouncy breezy ‘In Your Mind’ bursts with a rich sense of brotherly love – an ode to a younger brother battling with his demons. ‘Come To Me’ continues the theme – idiosyncratic and undeniably catchy, it stings the senses in all the right places including a bristling brass section.
‘We’re All Going To Brighton’ shares childhood memories with an easy going, seaside feel while the ska-tinged ‘Friday Night To Sunday Morning’ recollects the nutty boy’s slick, big production pop.
The most reflective moment on the record belongs to album closer ‘Thank You’, a soothingly melancholic ballad complete with strings and horns, Woody’s most intimate and affecting song on record to date.
With a little help from some close friends including South London born singer-songwriter Dan Shears (vocals), Tim Maple (guitar/keyboards), Dan Drury (bass), The Brass Monkeys (Madness’ brass section), wife Siobhan Fitzpatrick (vocals), and brother Nick (Oohs, Aahs, and guitar solos), ‘In Your Mind’ floats along on a sea of nostalgia and sing-along appeal.
