Joe Dolman - Something Beautiful
Joe Dolman - Something Beautiful

Release Date: Out Now

There are, like all coins, two sides to this track from 20 year old singer songwriter Joe Dolman. On the one hand, ‘Something Beautiful’ fits all too firmly in to the Ed Sheeran, James Bay and Jamie Lawson category of tunes which is offensively inoffensive. This is so ready for heavy BBC Radio 2 rotation and maybe use on a montage in some popular TV show E4 that it feels a little contrived – it only avoids being ‘Galway Girl’ by a couple of chords. However, flip that coin over and what you’ve got is a young, independent songwriter with a strong, smooth voice and the ability to knock out a chorus that earworms in to your subconscious after one listen. Now, depending on your levels of cynicism and snobbishness I’ll leave it up to you as whether you want to hear this as a heads or tails track but I’m going to keep flipping the coin until the next track comes out and then I’ll make my call.
