Discovery: Simon D. James

Burn The Man is the first track from Simon D. James’ debut EP Songs From A Dream Long Forgotten, and in our eyes it’s a sign of very good things to come!

By Jane Howkins

It’s a slow and dreamy track, focusing mostly on Simon’s soft vocals and a piano backdrop. The verses are pretty, but it’s the chorus where this artist really shines, with a beautiful chord and understated chord progression pushing the song along with an immense power that we haven’t heard in a long time.

Check the track out below and see what you think – the choir that starts up on the second chorus is particularly enthralling!
