The highs are high, the lows are low and the choruses are very catchy – dermot’s taken a leaf out of the almighty rag n bone man’s playbook for this album of pop bangers.

He’s more than just new soul though – there’s moments of electronica and hip hop that marry up to ed sheeran’s latest output, albeit with more of a heart on the sleeve feel to his songwriting. “Like Sheeran, the fast-rising Irish 27-year-old is an acoustic troubadour with electronic/hip-hop beats, and has already clocked up over 300 million streams. And yet, there’s more to the man from the Irish village of Rathcoole, whose soulful Irish Rod Stewart rasp was honed busking on Dublin’s Grafton Street when he was 16, and who flits from slightly trite, big-lunged love songs to darker musings on burglary and alcoholism.” – the guardian
