Boomgates : Whispering Or Singing
“Don’t know when you’re leavin’, but I hope it’s when I’m dead.” Ah Brendan Huntley, you big sweetie. This is by far the best track I’ve heard all year. I was never all that sold on Boomgates, and long thought that they were the weakest of the ECSR offshoots, but all that changed with the release of the astounding debut LP Double Natural. Everything about Whispering Or Singing is perfect. The moment when Huntley’s heartwarming first verse escalates into Steph Hughes’s triumphant chorus is nothing short of beautiful, as is the humble harmony that showcases all that is great about the two lead singers’ interplay. Also check out the ace film clip (which I’ve had playing on perpetual loop since last Wednesday).
