Albums of the Year 2021: Dave Barlow

1.Hearts and Hand Grenades- Turning To Ashes

“Turning to Ashes” is the benchmark of what every debut album should strive for. Its no-frills approach, pairs a highly energetic sound with powerful lyrics.  It takes you on an action-packed thrill ride which only slows briefly for the ballad ‘I Hide’ before carrying on full steam ahead with the lively ‘Adrenaline’ .’The in Crowd’ juxtaposes swing style verses with a hard rock chorus creating an intriguing and enjoyable track. If they can write a debut album as mature and engrossing as ‘Turning to Ashes’ then they have laid strong foundations to become a genuine force in the rock scene.
