McAlmont & Butler prove why sometimes marriage is more complex than it seems. Here, after all, are two rather different chaps, one the guitar-toting white indie boy, the other a quasi-epileptic, dreadlocked black flamingo with a voice like Shirley Bassey. They hated each other so much after their last collaboration that they vowed never to work together again.
So it's a bit of a surprise to find that they are - and that the break was well worth it. Falling is an epic, full of detailed sound and topped off with McAlmont's distinctive voice and a whole swathe of strings. It sits somewhere between Diana Ross and Pulp.
It's also nice to know that these two swallowed their pride, grew up and realised that they sounded better together than apart. A story with a happy ending then - but as this is the first single from their forthcoming album, the future looks even brighter.
