With its foot-tapping rhythm, catchy melody and buoyant backing vocals, ‘Silver Lining’ is a song that sticks around in your head. Jack Francis’s confident delivery stands out in this engaging new single. It’s full of smart lyrics and snappy rhymes, told from the perspective of a glass-half-empty narrator who is, “Trapped inside the life you chose.” Just as the words are tongue-in-cheek, the video is a wryly amusing animation, featuring a fish-version of Francis exploring the ocean and meeting other sea creatures.
Francis has already been championed by BBC Introducing and BBC Radio 6 and he toured relentlessly across the UK and Ireland (back when that was thing). ‘Silver Lining’ represents a step up to the next level for the Southampton singer-songwriter. Enjoy.
