We first came across George Ezra at this year’s Dot To Dot down in his native Bristol. We heared his soundcheck, planning to go elsewhere. After hearing 30 seconds – you don’t get long soundchecks at mid-afternoon of a festival – of that voice, we weren’t budging.
Since then, we’ve waited for songs. Actual songs. Not just the grainy Youtube footage we’ve had to make do on for the last few months.
Finally, finally, we have it. ‘It’s Just My Skin’ is a wonderfully dark little nugget from a man with a big future ahead of him. That voice still takes us off guard, coming from such a fresh faced young gent.
Prepare to fall in love.
