Recommended music: 'Love Me Oh Please Love Me' by Bullion
For me there are strong hints of Metronomy, both in terms of the sound and what he is trying to achieve - think mainly 'Nights Out' with a bit of 'The English Riviera' thrown in. If he can transport this to the live arena (and overcome his desire not to sing in front of anyone) then Bullion could hit the same sort of heights that the band from Torquay are now reaching.
Jenkins has often talked about his 'un-coolness' in terms of his influences and sensibilities, but on this evidence 2012 could well be the year that 'uncool' is the new 'cool'.
