Keaton Henson – ‘Sweetheart What Have You Done To Us’
Wobbly-voiced and preposterously ‘emotive’
I’m sure there is a huge audience for this kind of wobbly-voiced, echo-laden, preposterously ‘emotive’, ‘honest’ and ‘you-could-hear-a-pin-drop-in-here’ break-up balladry. But it does not include me. If you were to draw a Venn diagram to illustrate what sort of people dig this stuff, I wouldn’t even be in a circle. I’d be in another galaxy, trying to get as far away from said Venn diagram as possible, lest I get sucked into the ring of mope. Good luck to him, though.
