I thought there might have been a thread on him by now but seems not, he's already built a nice little selection of singles so I'm hoping the album will live up to my high hopes.

My favourites are definitely Brazil & Humongous:





Here's the tracklist for his debut album:
1 Humongous
2 Brazil
3 The Kids Don't Wanna Go Home
4 Mind
5 Make Me Your Queen
6 Isombard
7 I Am Everyone Else
8 Bethlehem
9 Why Do You Feel So Down
10 Paracetamol
11 Listen To Your Friends

Brazil was re-released (don't really know the exact date) a few months ago. Original release is hard to pin down though it looks like some time in August 2015.

Humongous was released 9th June 2017

Giving the album a listen now. Why Do You Feel So Down is definitely the 'best of the rest' barring the singles, Mind is a good track as well.

Indie record stores are currently stocking a picture disc vinyl of the album, which includes a bonus 7" of The Kids Don't Wanna Come Home

Wanted to get this, but I chose Rise And Fall Of Ziggy Stardust by David Bowie on gold vinyl instead due to limited budget (I couldn't buy both)

I'd not heard much of his until a couple of weeks ago but I am really digging this album! Somewhere inbetween someone like Tom Odell or Saint Raymond, and Blossoms, which is a good thing as far as I'm concerned. Humongous is my favourite and I'm also digging Brazil, The Kids Don't Wanna Come Home, Isombard and Why Do You Feel So Down.

This is probably somewhere in my top 5 albums of the year! So many touching messages in the songs, and quite similar to Joseph I'd have to say my faves are Brazil, The Kids Don't Wanna Come Home, Why Do You Feel So Down & Paracetamol - but I really like every song on the album.

Bought the vinyl even though I don't have a vinyl player kink.gif

I have heard lots about this chap, but only just heard 'Humongous' on the radio this morning. What a talent especially for his age. Might have to investigate his other songs!

Such a good album and he's great live too, him and his band all seem incredibly young though.

"Why Do You Feel So Down" is the next single, video is released tomorrow.

Perfect choice of next single, can't wait for the video wub.gif

Brazil has hit me so hard over the past month, it was a big favourite from the album anyway but it's become one of my songs of the year heart.gif

Isn't that because it's pretty much the only song left on the album which hasn't been released as a single? laugh.gif

In all seriousness though, yeah it's an excellent choice of single, let's hope it gets good support from Radio 1 and can get the album back in the Top 100!

Happy for another single release as I tend to listen to albums as singles are released from them and as Mango pointed out half the album has had a release although there are plenty that could be rereleased such as Bethlehem as they had a small impact as he was growing in popularity!

I've slowly been becoming a fan of his! I've been listening to Brazil and Humongous for the last few months but started adding a few other songs and then eventually this album to my collection recently. Surprised he's not been doing much chart wise or picking up any hype outside Radio 1 as he seems very accessible and I'd have thought his looks might contribute to his success a bit laugh.gif

Humongous is my favourite at the moment and I'm especially a fan of the synthpop build/change which was totally unexpected on first listen - I love the lyrics of Brazil also and I love the fact it was written for a GCSE music project! I can also see Why Do You Feel So Down becoming a new favourite of mine too heart.gif

As much as I love the album, and the new single, that video is just a bit shit really blink.gif
