Common Tongues – Jumping Ship
Common Tongues’ self-titled track, Jumping Ships, is a simple light-hearted affair. The rhythmic singing style that opens up the track gives way to a syncopated, pop-like chorus that would add a smile to anyone’s face. The second track, Life of Me, comes across as being more interesting simply because of the theatrical nature of the song and the pitch bending of notes at the end of the chorus. The song then eventually breaks down into a heart-warming, modern ballad with single bar acoustic strumming and choral echoes. Two beautiful and fun tracks both offering different things. Nice.
