Starsailor - Keep Us Together Single Review
"Keep Us Together"
A quick glance at Starsailor's calendar reveals they are to have a very interesting Summer, with shows planned across Europe, and culminating in slots at Hyde Park Calling and V Festival. More intriguingly is a gig planned at Kempton racecourse, and admirably, a show for the Fairtrade Foundation at the tiny Leeds Cockpit.
The third single to be lifted from last year's "On The Outside" record, "Keep Us Together" will be a great song for all those outdoor crowds to join in with. The "ohhh" hook begs to be belted out on a track where James Walsh and his posse up the dynamics from their usual sound. It may not push musical boundaries, but the positive vibes and swagger of the rhythm section make it one of Starsailor's more exciting and likeable tracks.
