I don’t really know much Bauhaus, Nick Cave, Leonard Cohen and all the artists that have real life influenced Gabriel Bruce – so instead my reference point for this song is The Divine Comedy. as Gabriel’s vocals just give me that hint of Hannon. He’s 22, signed to Mercury, managed by the team behind Florence and has a ridiculously deep voice.
If he doesn’t make it as a pop star I would like to hear him read an audio tape of Victorian horror stories.
