Wilding : I’ll Love You Until Monday Morning
Melbourne artist Justin Wilding Stokes has a debut album, Bird’s Bread, due out this week. The lead single has a breezy and a bouncing oom-pah beat, an homage to Sgt Pepper that wafts into a clattering reverie echoing A Day In The Life and half a dozen early songs by Blur. I’ll Love You.. is lively and pretty but not striking – the melody plods in a fairly predictably way. If anything here is really noticeable, it’s Justin’s voice, which has an odd nasal catch that rubs against the twee, tinkling music.
