SINGLE REVIEW: James Arthur – You’re Nobody Till’ Somebody Loves You


My main problem with this single is the intro. It has huge echoes of Jasmine Kara with blues guitar and horn stabs that make for an interesting beat. Then some shitty synth drone appears that would make even Diplo clench and then the track goes off in a different direction.

The production and mix are also strange, the intro is a certain volume, then when the track really ‘drops’ it gets louder, then the chorus is even louder. Like they’ve lit a fire and waved their arms screaming ‘THIS IS IT, THE CHORUS, EVERYONE LOOK’.

There are vocal climbs that sound like a discarded Muse lick,a video which ends up being a post-apocalyptic breakdancing contest outside a garage. Down an alley In Swindon. It basically looks like the set from ‘Escape From New York’. Just don’t even bother.
