Lamaq is now on 6music’s drivetime slot and Jo Whiley has a few nights a week on Radio 2. I tend to listen to Jo’s show on the way to play 7-a-side football on a Wednesday night. It’s a late night kick-off at 9pm, so I sometimes leave the house with plenty of time to spare and take a leisurely drive over whilst listening to Jo’s show.
Last week she played this gem - Someone That Loves You by HONNE and Izzy Bizu. I fell for it immediately, the chorus was instant, the way the song flows, the feel, the vocals - all sublime.
Someone That Loves You is equally dreamy and euphoric, combining pop, soul and electro with ease - sounding modern, yet familiar - just perfect. The male and female voices combine superbly to tell a tale of love and lust with Izzy lifting things for the chorus.
