In The Water by Better Than The Wizards

‘In The Water’ begins quite quietly and tamely, however the song soon bursts into a funky jive which you can’t help but to nod your head to and get jiving yourself. The addition of a gospel choir backing in the bridge adds a heavenly element to the track until the song soon vamps back up into the additive chorus.

My favourite track from the group is entitled ‘Up All Night’, mainly because it allows the lead vocals of Daniel Farthing to truly shine. Although the video is quite basic, it’s enough to get a sense of the party vibe the band likes to bring to their stage performances. Keep an eye out for these guys, they’ll soon be doing big things!
