Sad - Elton John vs Pnau
Skull & Bones
Taken from their I See Cathedrals album, the six-piece Manchester outfit’s latest release is a psychedelic indie rock track with plodding guitar riffs, escalating chords and vocals akin to Beatles track A Day In The Life – especially Paul McCartney’s jaunty middle solo.
Proving she has all the credentials of a successful recording artist, the X Factor runner-up’s debut single is pure class. The punchy drums and beat-heavy basslines of the Jump Up, Dance Hall-style rhythms suit her big voice and will definitely have fans bogling and ‘dutty wining’ across dance floors.
