Only Real – Cadillac Girl

April 21, 2014

There’s something awfully catchy about Only Real’s newest track “Cadillac Girl”. The first couple listens it came across as a pleasant and engaging jam, but as the repeated plays kicked in I got to see this track for its full worth. I’ve been a big fan of this emerging lo-fi, pseudo-hip hop sound coming out of the UK the past couple years with acts like Only Real and King Krule leading the charge. And in the case of “Cadillac Girl”, it’s the instance where Niall Galvin sings “but the world has moved again since then” as the sleek guitar riff kicks in that really gets me. I’m glad to see people are starting to take notice as he recently signed to Virgin/EMI and is said to be working on a new record with renowned producer Ben Allen.
