Noel Gallagher has unleashed his first bit of debut solo material and, perhaps inevitably, it is considerably better than anything ‘Beady Eye’ has yet turned out. Let’s have a look at the bulletpoints:
- It is called The Death Of You And Me
- It is a mature slice of Bacharachesque swoon pop
- There are some trumpets on it
- With at least one major hook, it is 100% more hook-filled than anything off the final Oasis album
If you were to liken it to a track by his former band, Gallagher Snr’s debut is a bit like The Importance Of Being Idle, but with a touch more Americana and a touch less Rhys Ifans faffing about with some coffins, which is no bad thing.
BTW not sure who the High Flying Birds are.
