When you come across a single with the title Gibberish, the temptation to make a smug joke is almost overpowering. Sadly for lazy critics everywhere, Cassius Henry's latest is far from gibberish. Instead, this is a slice of smart RnB that breathes new life into the UK soul scene.
He does have an irritating tendency to recite his own name a lá Craig David at the start of the song, but thankfully the song is strong enough to override such irritations. An unusual violin riff weaves its way through the song, making an haunting chorus, while Henry divides his time between singing (not too remarkably) and some ragga style toasting (much more impressively).
After collaborations with the likes of Kayne West and Wyclef Jean, Henry obviously knows the right people - Gibberish proves he's got the songs as well and the future's looking bright for him.
