Wow, if you’re looking for a song that’ll make you sit up and pay attention, I would highly recommend Will and The People, and their single ‘Addicted’. I’ve not heard anything quite like this before, so even after one listen, I would give this song full marks for originality.
Breaking it down, ‘Addicted’ is a song packed full of energy and personality, and a fast paced vocal that almost leaves you breathless. The music is an interesting mix of ska, reggae, and pop, with the slightest smattering of Brit Pop. I would describe it as Pulp meets Madness….at the Circus! It’s catchy, engaging, and more than a little quirky. I can only imagine the possibilities if they ever made a video to accompany this song! I have a feeling it would keep us amused well into 2010.
Apparently this is the first of many singles Will and The People will be releasing this year, and I for one, am looking forward to hearing what they come up with next. In the meantime, please click here to hear Will wishing music.co.uk a Happy Birthday, or here for our interview with him. You can also visit www.myspace.com/willandthepeople
