Brewer impressed me with his restless flow and the compassionate nuance he brought to grime, when I saw him in concert last year. He’s just as on point here, rapping over the up-tempo dance-pop beat, produced by Geeneus (Katy B, Magnet Man) and The Confect. Harnett, who’s featured on tracks by Rudimental, Disclosure and Snakehips, lays down more of her bright vocals. The track is thought to be appearing on Brewer’s upcoming debut album, Recreation. This chart-friendly summer harbinger is well suited to entice listeners to what else he is brewing up.
