Lightning is a very impressive track and is one of my favourite songs of the year so far – it’s catchy but never sounds too mainstream and Conor has some serious songwriting skills. It sounds truly beautiful at times and Conor’s voice is really soulful – the gospel backing vocals are also gorgeous, giving it an anthemic sound. It’s great to hear a singer-songwriter doing something a little different – listen to Lightning below!
