Always You is the debut single from Liverpool’s aptly named Charity Shop Pop. Having started writing music in his bedroom using a guitar and a MacBook purchased from a charity shop, Dave Hughes’ one man take on indie pop has potential to become strong competition amongst Liverpool’s music scene.
Recorded at Parr Street Studios, Always You is an ambient, shimmering slice of dream pop. Boasting a feel good jangly hook capable of making even the dreariest of lyrics addictive, there’s no doubt that Dave has nailed the formula for a classic, catchy indie pop track; but there’s definitely room for improvement in the form of more experimentation and cleaner production.
Charity Shop Pop’s debut is a delightful taste of the potential Dave Hughes holds, and should he continue to improve there’s no doubt that he’ll make a big breakthrough in the not so distant future.
