There is always space for big-screen, big-emotion, capital P Pop music. Especially when it’s done as expertly and rousingly as on London-based pop craftsman Ashley Singh’s new track, ’17’. The pointers are all here—themes of love, youth and wistfulness, grand gestures, a rousing chorus and lovely backing vocals. Singh is proving time and again to have a firm handle on constructing a narratively rewarding, put-your-hands-up-in-the-air song that makes you wish you were seventeen, forever.
One to blast from a car stereo as you drive down a road, just to clear your head, reminiscing about her.
