Liam Bailey - It's Not The Same EP

Ever since we caught Liam Bailey back in February, we've been ready to pounce on any new material that surfaced. Despite this weight of expectation, his third EP It's Not The Same will more than plug the gap until his debut full-length Out Of The Shadows comes out in September. The title track is Liam at his finest; his husky, honest vocals shine against old-school soul backing, replete with excellent brass, with the whole package guaranteed to warm your heart. A low-key acoustic version of his collaboration with Chase & Status, 'Blind Faith', follows but it's his original tracks that really excite. If you were to force us to decide a favourite aside from the title track, we'd plump for 'On My Mind' with its intermittent bursts of instruments that crescendo into a glorious wall of brass. That neither 'On My Mind' nor 'Older Than The Sun' seemingly appear on his forthcoming album leaves you wondering just what treats Liam Bailey has in store for us. Expectations be damned.
