Single Review – Jamie T – Power Over Men

Before his last album (Carry on the Grudge), Jamie T would have been remembered as the laid-back, hip-hop esque cockney poet who churned out great hits like ‘Sheila’ and ‘Sticks n Stones’. 2014 changed that. Carry on the Grudge changed all that by demonstrating Jamie’s ear for a diverse range of music. The LP ranged from having ballads like ‘Love is only a heartbeat away’, to the soul infused ‘Trouble’ to the rage of a song like ‘Peter’ and the indie-pop fun of ‘Zombie’. The most impressive caveat of the LP was that he managed it all without losing out on his impressive lyrical style. With its slightly reverbed guitars and soul styled backing vocals in the chorus, Power over Men, whilst catchy, fun and clever offers very few signs of a new direction for his new album, Trick Splash, which releases on the 2nd September 2016.
