Jack Woodward – Let It Happen 
Jack Woodward - Let It Happen

Release Date: Out Now

Young Jack has been sending me music for a while now and there has always been promise or potential to his music but I think new single ‘Let It Happen’ might just be the money shot. From the word go this is a stomping, guitar driven slice of indie-rock which pays attention to the details – from sharp, Jam-esque guitar stabs to the intakes of breath before the chorus starts to build. If this was a Take That song or Coldplay going back to the basics commercial radio stations would be all over it but actually this is more in the Paolo Nutini or Jake Bugg category for me with a triumphant, singalong chorus and the kind of energy you just can’t ignore. There’s a really satisfying late 80s indie breakdown in the Del Amitri or Deacon Blue vein before one last stomp through that chorus and then surely Radio 2 playlist is just a matter of time. Great tune from an artist developing in all the right places and all the right directions.
