Hallam London – “To the Sky”

hallamlondon-blicklicht-6351

Very enjoyably, “To the Sky” reminds of both David Bowie and Wild Beasts, the former reflective in the space suit-driven chorus – which aptly reminds of Suede’s glam-tinged rock quite a bit as well – and the latter in the trickling guitar usage in the verses. Bowie is obviously a connecting influence among the aforementioned successors, but comparisons aside, “To the Sky” is a great original showing from Hallam London. The group’s recent release, The Sheffield Album, is a collaboration with Sheffield-based poet and lyricist Ian Badcoe, with a focus on character development and story. The music is phenomenal as well, as “To the Sky” emphatically shows.
