Who? A four-piece band from West Yorkshire with Coyle Girelli on vocals, Mat Steel on guitar, Jon Langford on bass and Mal Taylor on drums
Which song? Single Champion from their debut album Borderline which was just released in the US on sept 25th
Why? Music-wise, this astonishing track has an interesting dynamic tempo all the way through which is just splendidly well-executed. A powerful drumming already kicking in in the beginning synchronizes smoothly with swift guitar riffs before the synths glides and takes over the first verse. Then comes the massive chorus which just shows off the fact that Coyle’s voice is simply a jaw-dropper. Even David Letterman seemed to be genuinely and utterly thrown by his incredible talent when the band appeared in his late night show. Coyle’s voice gets more powerful in the bridge when expansive and captivating sound of strings makes a strong and beautiful presence. Aren’t there many reasons for this soundtrack for Fifa 13 to be called ‘Champion’?
