EDITORS’ NOTES

If going solo was meant to be daunting, no-one told Nathan Sykes. Away from the shared spotlight of The Wanted, he unveils the soulful expression and versatility of his voice with admirable assurance. Moving to the percussive, choppy crunch of modern R&B, the furiously catchy “Good Things Come to Those Who Wait” and “Kiss Me Quick” are stages for some impressive vocal grandstanding, but he’s most emotive when he shows a little restraint on the pleading retro-soul of “Famous”.
