Essex represent! The acoustic sounds of Rob Humm may not be that different to those of plenty of others up and down the country, and indeed across the world, but there’s something so soothing about the way that he presents this tune that has led to it rattling around in my head for the past few weeks.
So what exactly makes this so great? Well, for one thing, the patience that he shows before blasting away with the brilliant chorus is incredibly well-judged and leads to that one big hit being that bit larger than you were anticipating. His voice acts as the perfect narrator as he talks us through tales from times gone by, supported by a much more fulfilling sound than the opening new phrases may have led you to believe. At heart, this is a pop song with a little more of an edge but there’s plenty more to get excited about than your regular, run-of-the-mill same old sounds.
Rob Humm is without doubt a man with a plan and with ‘Hindsight‘ he’s created a track that’ll make me remember his name for some time to come.
