James Holt is a Manchester musician with a real flare for sweet, charming and glinting jangle-pop and a supreme ear for melody and hook.
His latest single ‘Pendulum’ is a joyous wee slice of indie-pop. Produced by The Coral’s James Skelly it evokes the spirit of classic guitar pop and has arrived at the right time; it is the perfect companion to balmy summer sun. It is a lush and soft-edged guitar-pop gem as bright twangy guitars shimmer above a seductive groove, twinkly chimes of glockenspiel and sweet vocals, and all adorned with hooks you could hang your hat on. ‘Pendulum’ is hazy, charming and utterly divine pop song – and one that is totally irresistible.
Listen to ‘Pendulum’ below and be prepared to be bowled over.
