Clean Bandit and Louisa Johnson’s new single Tears is an incredible, post-shit hitting the fan, break up club anthem that sees the latter giving it hell for leather over the UK band’s explosive violin sweeps, piano thuds and dance beats.
One of the determining factors behind the success of these emotionally empowering epics is having an artist you can root for and, following an underwhelmingly lukewarm reaction to a painfully poor choice of winner’s single, last year’s X Factor UK champ Louisa Johnson is the perfect underdog.
One of the most likeable and incredibly talented performers from any X Factor season receives a huge break on Tears. Whether it’s belting out the huge chorus or emoting every nuance of the heartache so that it truly resonates, Louisa rises to the occasion having been given a long awaited opportunity to showcase the full might of her vocals.
