Josh Record's music career, running in tandem with that of his career as a quasi-religious deity, has been going rather well. His debut EP, Bones, charted at No 2 in the iTunes singer-songwriter chart, he has some summer live dates with Bruce Springsteen penciled in, as well as festival slots at Glastonbury, Latitude and T in the Park. Newly signed to Virgin, he has been working on his debut album with Mike Crossey (Ben Howard, Foals, Arctic Monkeys) on a slew of songs that will make you wonder whatever happened to Tom Odell. For Your Love showcases Record's quavery voice, which is well suited to melodrama. "I would do anything for my love," he sings, and we didn't really believe him until we read about his messianic exploits. Now we couldn't be more convinced. The arrangement is key, and raises the song well above the usual acoustic troubadour fare. The title track makes even more explicit Record's orchestral ambition, with multitracked harmonies that are positively Brian Wilsonesque offsetting the nagging feeling elsewhere that without the strings and things, this would be too close to Chris Martin territory for comfort. The lyrics need some work, too, although we accept Record has been busy. "Darling, when your feet are cold, wait up, I'm coming home," he promises, adding a teensy bit creepily, "My love will clothe your bones." Still, he successfully communicates rapture and this would work well on a TV advert for Bovril or some other warming product. And if this music-making lark doesn't quite work out, he could always apply for a sainthood or something.
