Nottingham singer-songwriter Joel Baker has a striking honesty about him that makes his music that instantly grabs your attention. The new single from this young man, ‘Rupi Kaur’, is delivered as a story of a relationship breaking down through immature communication and a lack of a mutual way forward. The plucked acoustic notes and Baker’s unique voice (somewhere between Dylan, Beans on Toast and Frank Turner in contemplative form) are a marriage made in heaven as he sings about his denial and heartbreak. There should be a special mention for the video as well which as well as being an alternative tour of Nottingham sees Baker keeping an admirably straight face whilst performing in some, shall we say, unusual locations.
