ewport City Radio's Love Live Music Awards has officially launched and the nominees for the Best Original Song have been announced. This week I am going to be taking you through each of our nominees so you can decide who gets your vote!
I was honoured to be part of the judging panel for this category and out of 24 entries, we have managed to whittle it down to 6 nominees. Today we have Newport band Curious City with 'How Are You My Love'.
This is a lovely slow song about trying to move on from someone. It is a longer song but I adore that. With this song, I feel it tells the story thoroughly – and put to that smooth, slow acoustic guitar adds to the emotion of those lyrics.
The vocal performance from front woman Ellie McCue is absolutely beautiful but what takes it up a notch is a harmonized vocal in the chorus from a male vocal. I think these moments in the song are what makes a good song become a great song!
Check out this song by watching the music video I made along with fellow Newport City Radio member Gareth Willey and local filmmaker Haydn Rushworth of the Neon and cast your vote here!
