Django James & The Midnight Squires: Hurricane (single)

~ Wednesday, 1 July 2009
Looking like a refugee from a charity shop, the diminutive 18yr old has shall we a say a unique style. Thankfully his music is more stylish than his dress sense.

It was probably inevitable that he was going to be a musician as he is the son of Dave Stewart of the Eurythmics and Siobhan Fahey of Shakespeare's Sister. He has not followed in his parents footsteps regarding musical taste, instead we find ourselves with some radio friendly rock with a big dollop of glam on the side.

The first of the two track on this single, Hurricane is a rocking bit of power pop sounding somewhere between Razorlight and The Enemy while second song Pretend It's Not Me is leaning more toward the bubble gum punk of the Yeah, Yeah, Yeahs.

Young Mr Jones has a likable voice packed with attitude and Hurricane certainly is catchy enough to find him in the charts both here in the UK and in his adopted home of America.
