Review | Mide – ‘Unlikely’ (single)


Building on the acclaim of his Mainstream EP from earlier in the year, Mide releases ‘Unlikely‘, a funky piece of acoustic soul.

With his previous EP earning praise from the likes of SoulCulture, MOBO and MTV UK, ‘Unlikely’ acts as a third single from his upcoming debut album ‘E.G’. The track is uplifting in its own self-deprecating way with Mide passionately singing ‘Mr. Regular because I’m nobody in particular.‘ On this evidence Mide definitely won’t be a nobody for long.

Like his last single, ‘Mainstream‘, ‘Unlikely’ sees Mide again connect with artist, singer and producer Jonathan Owusu Yianomah; marrying Mide’s passionate, almost husky vocals to Yianomah’s funky bassline. Even though the track’s guitars are folky, the horn segment lends it a real live feel as well as bundles of energy. The song relies heavily on it’s chorus and rightly so; it is lively, original and a true earworm.

Clearly, Mide is an artist with something to say, both personally and socially, and has a voice that demands attention. Clever song-writing and never having to reach for those elusive high notes, Mide is a thoroughly British talent on the rise.

‘Unlikely’ will be available on all digital stores on October 14th and is the final single to be released before the debut album, slated for release later in the year.||||
