A refreshing summery surprise
I Am Arrows - Sun Comes Up Again

Three words scream ‘NO!’ in relation to this solo project: Former. Razorlight. Drummer. But bugger me if ‘Green Grass’ isn’t a refreshing summery surprise from multi-instrumentalist Andy Burrows (who plays everything on the album). With producer Eliot James (Noah And The Whale, Bloc Party) successfully creating an upbeat West Coast mid-’70s infused vibe, we have the enthusiastic percussionist in honest voice and exuberant form. Sharing the pop soul sensibilities of Squeeze with just a dash of Brendan Benson, there’s even a soupçon of harpsichord in there. What’s not to like about these small songs with a big heart?
