Losing your phone can be a freeing experience but what if it also changed the lives of your colleagues? Office Oracle is the stand-out track of the new EP from Faithful Johannes. Listening to birdsong on the way to work and the wireless at night felt so pure, as it mixed with the utter perfection and incredibly amusing story of texts that change people’s lives.

Sandwiched between a misguided song choice during Karaoke Classic (Billy Joel) – “sings so high but no falsetto” – and the rather calmly accepting yet anxiety inducing A Drift, that conjures the familiar feeling of drowning in responsibility with actually nearly drowning. He does manage a “small thumbs up” before emerging from the water, but this EP gets a massive one from me and best of all it is the first of two – the second half is out in February.
