If you’ve been a fan of pop music for long enough, you’ll know that chart music seems to move in cycles. At the moment it’s going though a phase in which the structures of good, well-written pop are being freshened up with elements of funk music (see the likes of ‘Uptown Funk’ for proof). This pop-funk trend seems likely to continue for some time, and fitting nicely into that sub genre is songwriter Dale McKay.
An acoustic artist with a very accessible sound, McKay has already been championed by BBC Introducing and is now getting ready for the release of his new EP. ‘Here and Now’ will include the track above and is available from September 16th for fans of new, independent pop music.
