Another Pete Maher Master –
Hudson Taylor – Singing For Strangers (Album)
About Hudson Taylor:
Hudson Taylor has spent the last five years honing an infectious brand of folk-pop – and, in doing so, has gone from busking the streets of their native Dublin to playing huge festivals across the UK and abroad. The brothers, Alfie and Harry (Hudson Taylor is their surname) have become favourites on the live scene for their energetic shows, impeccable harmonies, and growing songwriting prowess with delicately picked guitar lines and anthemic choruses. Prior to being signed, they released their first EP Battles in 2012, followed by Cinematic Lifestyle in the same year, and then Osea in October 2013. Initially operating under the moniker “Harry & Alfie”, they seemed more like a cheeky twosome from a Famous Five tale and, much like Blyton’s books, it’s hard not to fall in love with their charm.
The above video was filmed at Dean Street Studios and is still my favourite track and video from the band.
