COREY LAYZELL, “These Hands”
The first thing that will strike you about “These Hands” by Essex-born singer Corey Layzell is his voice. Think of everyone who might have stood out because they didn’t sound like anyone else. Corey reminds me of MNEK without soulful power but with a lot of pop potential in a Bastille kind of way. “These Hands” is about fighting for love, and it’s set to an engaging and complimentary pop/dance synth track. It’s no wonder that Sia is a vocal influence for Corey. “These Hands” is everything that you enjoy about pop music that’s unmistakably unconventional and dance music is the perfect genre to host it. I’m predicting we’ll be hearing much, much more from Corey Layzell very soon!
