John Newman At Glastonbury Festival

June 27, 2014

“Hello Glastonbury!”…


“Hellllllllo Glastonbury”.

And I’m sick and tired of hearing this phrase already. Whether it’s the impotent BBC ad or John Newman substituting silence for those cries, I am sick of it. Newman’s set is a bag of cliches: a kind of Hall & Oates but without the songs to back it up. His hyper literal lyrical commentary sets a tone for a set which leaves about zero for the imagination. It really is a sign of the times that such a vanilla pop writer is bathed in litres of compliments.
