Crack in the Road

This impressive debut from London’s Jodie Abacus stands out as one of the feel good moments of the year thus far.

Penned last year after having fought off pneumonia, I’ll Be That Friend is an ode to eternal companionship – admirably honest without a hint of pretentiousness. With the Magical Mystery Tour-esque piano chords underpinned by Abacus’ uplifting, soulful vocal, it’s a million miles from anything else around right now, and all the more utterly brilliant for it. Check it out below, alongside details of his upcoming shows.
