Liverpool-based Mike Nelson is BANNERS, he delivers sublime, grandiose pop. Having just unveiled his second release ‘Shine A Light’, it is clear that he is set on a path of greatness. A voice that equals the emotional intensity and touching beauty of Rhodes.
‘Shine A Light’ starts small and grows tall, opening with a weightless falsetto, the song soon bolsters confidence and builds into a driving anthem of stunning intent. Equalling the feeling of what it felt like hearing Coldplay for the first time, it’s bold songwriting delivered with a heart-thumping vibrancy. BANNERS definitely has won the rightful title of best new artist of 2015.
