June’s tune of the month

21 Jun

Jono McCleery - Wonderful Life

Jono McCleery – Wonderful Life

The second single to be released by this up-and-coming Ninja Tune artist certainly doesn’t disappoint. You may need to give it a couple of listens and it will take a minute for you to realise that this is a cover (if you hadn’t already guessed by the title). It’s beautiful, melancholy and  heart-felt.

You’ll like it if you like:

– Hearing cover versions with a difference

His first and also amazing single, Tomorrow is available on Amazon and iTunes. Wonderful Life will be available to buy on 27th June. Have a listen and find out more here
