Stan says: # Monday. Until our friends at The Sound of Confusion steered us in the direction of the free download EP Jim Noir is currently offering up to non members on his website (here), we must confess that his music has not been often in our thoughts in recent times. But though our boat remains largely un-rocked by the contents of said sampler, hearing Noir’s voice again set in motion a chain of events that was never going to end without us listening to ‘The Only Way’ at volume this morning. When we first heard this track some six and a bit years ago it felt to us like a piece of near perfect pop music – incredibly moving and heartfelt yet magically uplifting at the same time. Thankfully it still does.
