Boomkat Product Review:
Smart young singer-songwriter Eugene McGuinness came up with something of an overlooked gem with his The Early Learnings Of... mini album. 'Bold Street' is lifted from that very record, and is certainly worth your attention second time round. McGuinness rattles through some downbeat observational lyrics accompanied by a gorgeous melodic delivery that brings to mind Rufus Wainwright in an odd sort of way. The arrangement could hardly be more spare, but there are some lovely harmonies wafting across a backdrop of twinkling glockenspiel and keyboards. B-side 'Hangman' takes the same sort of formula and exploits it with a similarly high level of success. Ace.
