Single Of The Week No 1 - Smith & Burrows : When The Thames Froze
Ouch my heart. Tom Smith of the Editors and Andy Burrows, ex-Razorlight, raise their voices in baritone-meets-tenor harmony for this beautiful end of year anthem. First delicate and weary - all frosted snow, aching bones and disillusion - the song has a mighty, spirit-lifting finale. "Tell everyone that there's hope in your heart/Tell everyone or it will tear you apart," they sing, "At the end of Christmas day/ When there's nothing left to say/The years go by so fast/Let's hope the next beats the last."
When The Thames Froze is out now on Liberator.
