Back in May, I shared an acoustic video of fellow Oxford-native Charlie Cunningham’s track Breather, filmed at The Great Escape Festival 2014. Now almost five months on, Cunningham has emerged with his first single proper, the stripped-back and slightly hypnotic Outside Things. Filling a space alongside Mercury Prize nominated artist Nick Mulvey, Cunningham’s Hispanic, percussive guitar playing was learnt during two years of study in the Spanish city of Seville. Minimally produced, the track is a refreshingly natural acoustic number that puts Cunningham clearly on our radar for one’s to look out for in 2015.
