Sam Sparro

21st Century Life

Sam Sparro Pic: Tom Oxley
The mercurial, ubiquitous brilliance of ‘Black And Gold’ has earned Sparro critical immunity, so it’s now mandatory to refer to him as the neon-silhouetted saviour of pop. Just one quibble though: if someone played the jive of ‘21st Century Life’ to you blind and told you it was Room 5 feat Oliver Cheetham’s belated follow-up to Lynx advert hit ‘Make Luv’, would you know any better?
