By Jane Howkins

It’s Only Now That I Know used a typical four chord melody throughout the song, but this only makes it sound more catchy. It’s also quite a haunting melody, with the vocals, guitars and piano following this – the trickling piano on the chorus makes it sound particularly beautiful. The way the vocals are used on the chorus sounds amazing, with a selection of gorgeous backing vocals intertwining with the lead vocals.
