Reliably informed

The new track from South Shields songwriter Human History. is quite charming in places, sounding a little like a lone robot discovering the human in itself by learning the piano. With those could-break-up-at-any-minute vocals, the hook is a fond reminder of Aqualung’s Strange And Beautiful, the emotion almost too much to be contained by the device beaming it back down to Earth: “How d’you fly like that / And stay up?” comes the pensive line, as if putting words to a baby’s thoughts as they look up at a spinning mobile, vocals suspended as if in space.

The song gathers momentum until an explosion is thrown out into the stars and the blackness, where synthesisers meet strings, chaos meets calm, and human life enters a vast, silver-tinged new world.
