We think, that with The Start, Alex Hulme has produced the summeriest pop tune of the year. What do you reckon?

It’s been a good year for Garstang born, Liverpool based, Alex. Having played for Sir Paul McCartney and Billy Ocean and supported a wealth of artists including Willy Mason, Willis Earl Beal and Emmy the Great, 2012 certainly seems like the start of something good for this pop/folk, singer/songwriter. Alex’s first two EPs caught the attention of BBC DJs, and festival programmers alike but Alex’s third EP, The Start, showcases his best work to date.

“I’m tired of always hearing down beat tracks from solo acoustic artists,” says 21 year old Alex, “I really want to write the songs that people sing along to, the ones that make you want to turn them up, jump around and enjoy life!” The title track of the EP does just that. The Start is a pulsing, pounding, feel-good, acoustic pop song with glorious boy/girl summer harmonies.

Second track, All that I Have, is an example of some of Alex’s more thoughtful song writing, working delicate vocals over beautiful guitar and building to a full sing-a long chorus at the end. It has an uplifting feel and is a fans’ favourite at live shows, where Alex often gets the whole room singing along at the top of their lungs.

Background, is a powerful and emotive track showcasing Alex’s folkier tendencies. Its epic arrangement of layered vocals, guitar, banjo, twin basses and twin drum kits rises to a loud, tumultuous and captivating crescendo.

The closing track, Sparks, once again featuring boy/girl dynamics, is full of charm and character. Alex describes it as, “A simple and naive love song.”

Cityscape Records is a long established kitchen table label which has been championing DIY pop from a Bolton terrace since ‘96. Recording in glamorous locations such as the ‘back room’ and utilising the best mixing and mastering talent Urmston has to offer, we really hope you enjoy our latest labour of love.
