Like a chirpy extra folky Frank Turner, eighteen year old Derbyshire based singer David Gibb takes a rambling look at the follies of youth. The chorus is especially pleasing, pretty singalong and going with the old way of using repetition to win people over. The chorus is in fact the main bit of the song, and somehow reminds me of the Levellers in their pomp, before they got old and disillusioned, somewhat appropriately. There’s an album and EP in the back catalogue, which would appear to be well worth checking out.
This Young Boy is self released on 10th May. Go to David's myspace for details of how to get a copy.
