“I’m not a smart man, though I’ve convinced a few, to follow me through fire”
First Person Plural is the latest project from Mike Robinson (formerly of Annuals).
Debut EP Gold Wasp is an assured set of recordings worthy of your time, with introspective lyricism wrapped around a warm glow. Mercy in particular, is a song I find myself coming back to… Robinson’s vocals sharing the same oaken rasp with Bonnie Prince Billy, a rich melancholy contained within. The track is built around fine musicianship, with dusky country guitar and The National’esque chord progression and melodic flourishes.
