We’re running out of superlatives to describe Sam Griffiths, the impossibly fresh-faced and prodigious talent now based in York – who has already caught the eye and ear of people in the know…

Here’s his latest, A Noise Such As You, a delicious slice of wistful yearning for a lost relationship.

The deceptive lilting backing underpins stunning lyrics which kick off with these intriguing words:

I miss the noise you made in my house
The paint you spilled on my walls
The wood you chipped off my floor
The bulbs you smashed in my cellar
The noise you made in my house.

It’s a smooth lament that hints at a dark past, deceptively cloaked in a voice so sweet you could get a sugar high from it. Let us know what you think.
