Nick Capaldi – Disgrace Face

Remember Jim Capaldi, best known as the drummer in Traffic in the late sixties and early seventies of the last century? He sadly passed away in 2005, but his musical genes still wander around in the family.

A distant relative of Jim’s – the talented multi-instrumentalist Nick Capaldi – will release his new album Neon Heart on 19 May. I read somewhere that all of the tracks could be a single (pretty promising) and his bio calls him ‘one of the UK’s hottest rising musicians’. But then again: that’s what every bio says. At least every bio of upcoming British artists 😉

So let’s just judge the man by his music…

I really like his new single Disgrace Face, so that’s a good start. I hear a little bit of Blur in it and a little bit of Sparks even, and in places it makes you want to sing Ruby Tuesday, which is never a bad thing. But all in all it’s a smart slice of pop rock that should be able to give Nick Capaldi the attention he deserves.
