X Ambassadors – Ahead of Myself 
X Ambassadors - Ahead of Myself

Release Date: Out Now

I have to admit that US trio X Ambassadors have passed me by up until now but I’m glad to have finally crossed paths with these gents. ‘Ahead of Myself’ starts as with bare vocal line that is as soulful as it is confessional. An acoustic guitar line and heartbeat pump join in as this grows in confidence and stature in front of our eyes and ears. Eventually, when the chorus drops, we’re somewhere between Passengers, Rudimental and Bastille but with the kind vocals that Sam Smith can only dream of. There’s a real sense of the bewilderment that will be familiar to anyone who’s been through real heartbreak but all wrapped up in an anthemic alt-pop soul stomper.
