Faulkner bounces on

Newton Faulkner, ‘Write It On Your Skin’

Write It On Your Skin

(Ugly Truth/RCA)

The title track from the Englishman’s third LP is a soft tread into well worn territory.

Faulkner’s sharp talent for balancing pop hooks above layers of guitar has never served him better than on this track, where a bouncy acoustic verse melts into a radio-ready chorus. It’s folk pop at its happiest, keeping the folkies content whilst reeling the wider audience in.
