For their latest single, Accolade showered songwriter and Folk Rock artist Capitansam has written a celebration of the vibrant grass roots music scene in Manchester with “Sweet Mancunia”.
As a Mancunian myself, I knew Sweet Mancunia would be a soundscape I’d take great pleasure delving into. But I didn’t quite anticipate how succinctly the soulfully jazzy blues which ensued would resonate.
Sweet Mancunia is a far-cry from the likes of the Stone Roses, Oasis, Happy Mondays, and all of the other ballsy Britpop which we’re renowned for. But it served as yet another prime example of the talent which constantly springs up from our industriously endearing city.
As the lyrics took me to all of the best music venues and the home of live music; Oldham Street, I started to know how people in New Orleans feel.
