Johnny Flynn – The Box

So maybe there is something to this Folk revival after all. Certainly a few minutes in the company of Johnny Flynn (and the Sussex Wit) should have you clambering for more. His cites Shakespeare among his influences but thankfully what emerges is altogether less taxing on the grey matter. Perhaps he keeps that particular wordsmith aside for his acting pursuits. Up to now all that has emerged is a couple of fine singles but there is an album called ‘A Larum’ on the way. ‘The Box’ has a freewheelin’ narrative supplied by Flynn’s rich vocals and is ably backed up some softly clattering instrumentation. You are perfectly within your rights to clap along or move about as if in the grip of a particularly euphoric barndance. KD
