Could Active Child's forthcoming album be more than just good but also a breakthrough into the mainstream?
He's really a curiosity for us 'musos' at the moment to be fair but the new staff...
I've got both of the songs he's released off the debut LP 'You Are All I See' and frankly they're very good indeed. The surprising thing about them is they have real potential to be hits - there's a great beat behind this new stuff and what with 'Playing House' embracing a classic R&B vibe, there's potential here. 'Hanging On' takes that wonderful haunting sound he does so well and makes it more accessible. I'm looking forward to this.
