From: London, England
Five Years, the new single from Feldspar isn't, as I was initially hoping, a cover of the Bowie song. After the first hearing I'm glad that it's not a cover, as good as a Feldspar cover of Bowie would be, because a new Feldspar song is like a precious jewel to be loved and treasured.
There's a yearning, a sadness, an emotional honesty and, with the line "If I can't have you no-one can", a sinister edge to Five Years that tugs at the heartstrings like a virtuoso violinist. It's another in a lengthening line of emotionally charged, heartfelt and intensely expressive songs in the London five piece's repertoire that makes them one of my favourite bands around today.
Quite why Feldspar aren't multi platinum selling mega stars is a mystery that would baffle the mind of Stephen Hawkins.
