Hot Video Alert: Olly Murs - Thinking Of Me
Oh Olly Olly Olly. You really can do no wrong in my book. I absolutely LOVED Olly Murs' first single "Please Don't Let Me Go." It was sweet, catchy and the video was absolutely adorable. That song also gave us a good feel for the kind of sound Murs' was going for on his debut album, due out November 29th. Murs' sound is a little bit pop, a little bit R&B, a little bit retro. His voice reminds me very much of Will Young, and while that's not a bad thing, his songs are beginning to sound like Will Young songs. Sure, he's his own artist. The musical style is different but the delivery is very reminiscent of the Pop Idol winner's vocal delivery. No matter.
Second single, "Thinking Of Me" follows suit, in terms of overall feel and sound. Due November 22nd, "Thinking Of Me" was co-written by Murs, Steve Robson and Wayne Hector and co-produced by Robson and Future Cut. What could have made this single better for me is if Professor Green would have made an appearance, as originally planned. Unfortunately that never happened, so Murs is left to fend for himself. The video clip is cute as ever, featuring Olly falling asleep in his Ice Cream truck and daydreaming about pretty girls. These two singles have me hopeful for the album and while I sincerely hope that the ENTIRE album doesn't have this same laid back islandy vibe...I'd love it all the same no matter what. When it comes to Olly Murs, I'm pretty easy to please.
