I can’t take credit for this brilliance – it’s all The Edgitator. Though he gave me permission to re-post his write-up, I encourage you to visit/subscribe to his site. Trust, you’ll thank me later. Without further ado….
Mike Bones, a New York native, is taking a tip from the Kings of Leon Rule Book: Break big in the UK and in time you’ll see the benefits spread in the states. I’m hoping.
His debut single from his sophomore album, “What I Have Left”, has the UK pubs and blogs raging about the track’s orchestral build-up, hopeless and despairing lyrics, and Bones’ natural talent on guitar and vocals – it’s the Doves meets the Verve’s Bittersweet Symphony, but it’s a one-man show. Still a little too indie-sounding to hit mainstream, but really, those are the gems that are worth a listen.
“I could marry you with what I have left – but I’m certain you’ll do better on your own…”
“I could leave you with what I have left – would you prefer hatred or bitterness?”
