A swirling guitar and bass riff envelopes this absolutely great track, which upon first listen makes me think back to The (magnificent) Teardrop Explodes’ legendary and epic “Camera Camera”.  All the markings of an instant classic, “Illuminate Me” is pure pop from A – Z.  From the structure of the song itself; the catchiness of the overall track and the breaks and use of devices like an (unexpected) acoustic guitar interlude, it really satisfies the appetite of any pop fan/appreciator.  Adam Christopher Moult has a riveting voice and it works perfectly with this song.

If this terrific song is any indication of the album due to come, it will one to keep your eyes open for.  Give this a listen – guaranteed to be played over and over and over and over.

Hello Mr. Sunshine will be released in the spring, 2017
