Big Crown continue to show the way forward in pop music with their find 79.5 whose new single Boy Don’t Be Afraid is the second to be drawn from the soon come Predictions album. It seems to come from an alternative 2017 in which drum machines, autotune and house music have never been invented and dance bands still like guitars, use live organic drum breaks and hark back to the lead female vocals of Minnie Ripperton and the sort of melodies she employed. Hmm – that does sound good. Of course, it never hurts to have Big Crown head honcho, Mr Leon Michels, on production either.
