Newcastle’s Simon Taylor releases his new EP, Karma, in which he draws upon the lyrical ancestry of artistry greats such as Leonard Cohen and Serge Gainsbourg. Judgement Day is a soft yet rousing track and ruminates on “What you gonna do when they come for you?” in a dynamic ballad of rock and folk.

Taylor’s tracks feature beautifully silky vocals and assured percussion, which both propel his tracks and give warmth to them. Like An Angel captures a Leonard Cohen-esque element, as the confluence between song and poetry within Taylor’s EP makes it a poetic and musical masterpiece.
