Sam Bradley releases his latest EP ‘Not Your Kind’ and contrary to what it’s titled this EP will no doubt appeal to the masses given the chance. The London based singer/songwriter claims his influences from a mixture of Americana, folk, blues and rock. He isn’t lying either, you can hear these genres spread across his music and mixed together in a seamless way.

One notable thing he has managed to pull off rather fine is the overall style of his EP. Just like the likes of other British musicians such as Bobby Long, he has entered a genre of music that is not native to his country and made it sound like he is living in the era. Only further bridging the gap between British and American cultural differences and displaying the talent that England has to offer in terms of country and folk singers.

Even though there are only four songs on this release, he manages to fill his time perfectly. There is a good range within the tracks and at no point does it feel forced or boring. There is no single strongest point of it. A mixture of his flawless voice and touching and at times thought provoking lyrics; which include subjects of family, religion and relationship blend together nicely to produce true music.

It is hard to pick out the strongest track between the five, lyrically ‘Science Prevents Me’ with cleverly written religious themes that turn into an ordinary relationship. For the tone however, the strongest track would have to be the opening one ‘Not Your Kind’ it contains a real authentic sound, one that would be hard to rival with most of todays current music.

Ultimately this EP is a game changer. It’s smart and touching. Bradley is known for having a loyal fan base and this EP will only further that theory. Sam Bradley is fast becoming one of Britain’s hidden folk gems.

Rating: 10/10
