He has got pleasant retro down pat very early in his career. Your probably hearing ‘Truck On’ already. A carsick mixture of classic blues laptop jiggery-pokery and social commentary that was a huge hit at the summer festivals, even leaked as a non-single airplay on the coolest radio stations. Perhaps not the finest track on the album, but nothing short of anthemic clap-along regressive progress.
Simple Kid is turning into a jewel in the crowd of the current wave of electro tinged singer-songwriters you just want to give him a big cuddle – this track is absolutely charming. On the barometer of quirk, SK rates quite high. 8/10
