If you're a fan of Aiden Grimshaw - now just Aiden - there's a good chance that Daniel James' vocals will be pleasing for your ears.
In his first single from the forthcoming EP of the same title 'Ain't No Money', Daniel James manages to explore a variety of topics including but not limited to: money, power and greed.
Starting off timidly before building into a rapturous and triumphant chorus that's laid upon sharp and intense guitars and piano playing whilst featuring gospel-soaked vocals, the Northern Ireland-born but London-residing artist does well to prove he can stand on his own two feet, showing exactly why people should take note.
It's a track you'll want to listen to on repeat a few times so you can hear every moment rather than casually listen whilst meandering around the house or watering the plants. There's a realness to it that's hard to find in a lot of pop music and it's that which should keep fans coming back time and time again.
