Loyle Carner cropped up on all the tip lists that matter at the end of last year (BBC Sound of List, The Blog Sound of 2016 and the most important of all…. Breaking More Waves Ones to Watch 2016) and his latest tune No CD (featuring Rebel Kleff) shows exactly why his inclusion was fully deserved. Featuring his now recognisable laid back style, it’s hooky, gritty and cool as f*ck.
Let’s just hope that this track earns him a few quid because it seems that poor old Loyle has spent all his money on some old CDs. Does anyone feel like they need to give him a bit of a big brother / sister talking to? Loyle, it’s 2016 mate, you can save a hell of a lot of money if you just use a streaming service. You can still have your old Jay Zs and a couple of ODBs and they’ll already be in perfect order for your OCD as you describe in the song – just get on Spotify / Tidal / Apple Music and expand your musical collection infinitely.
Watch the video below, filmed in one continuous shot. Enjoy in particular the muso head nodding moment around the 1:10 mark. Oh and Loyle also needs another talking to about his use of the milk carton - Loyle didn't your mother ever tell you that it needs to go back into the fridge after use?
