Urban-folk collective Billy Momo’s new single, ‘I’ve Got You’, is the the new release by the Swedish-based seven-piece hit British shores for the first time with new track – a modern take on classic folk music is often loss in the swirl of with pulsing pop elements, to be honest few rise above that folk-pop at least when they walk down that particular music path.
The track was written between the two founding members, Tomas Juto and Oskar Hovell, whilst undergoing their daily jobs. Juto would write vocal lines in his office while Hovell would use the recording facilities at the school he worked at to transfer the ideas in his head into a physical presence. The first real demo of the song was recorded in Juto´s basement, while the subject of the song – his daughter – was upstairs trying her best to sleep through the noise. The single is taken from their forthcoming album, ‘Drunktalk’, due for release on 2nd February 2015
Heavier orchestral parts, punched by the most boring drum pattern for months, is their is a real drummer, if so why were you so bored, if not, sack the producer – it’s that poor, aside that the single works, stringed backdrop with electric guitar restrained refrains around a solid fit for purpose vocal, a confident single, ‘I Got You’ will no doubt win over a sea of fans, which, no doubt, will have no concern over percussive frailties. 7.2/10
