Richard Rawson ft Tom Parker – ‘Fireflies’

After the disbanding of N-Dubz and an eye opening life style change – Fazer aka Richard Rawson is back with his debut solo single – Fireflies, under his own name, producing the music he always wanted to make.

Rawson’s rap is insightful, personal and alongside the melodic piano undertones gives us a look into the stars past; the highs and the lows, whilst likening his journey to that of a firefly, which leaves you wanting to keep listening to find out more.

“I swear I’m like a firefly,
I require darkness in order to shine”

Fireflies has an extremely catchy and memorable chorus which is sang by ex- The Wanted hottie Tom Parker and is his first solo appearance after the band announced an extended hiatus earlier in the year.

“As I stare across the sky
I see nothing but a million fireflies
reminding me that I can make my light shine
it’s not over, over, over”

Tom’s strong vocals bring something that little bit different and exciting to the song, especially as it’s not a collaboration we would have naturally expected, where Tom’s AD-Lib (Improvisation for those who aren’t musically tech-savvy) near the end of the track leaves the audience on a high.

The video is a great addition, showing the light and shade in the song compared to the feelings of the artist and is perfectly executed to portray the strong message of the song.

Fireflies showcases both artistes versatile, solo talents and is a great track that us Brumoters Love!

Nobody does it like Lawson!

Many teens flocked to OMG Live yesterday at the LG Arena – Forum Live stage, for the event which featured both up and coming musicians, DJ’s and some of the finest names in pop including Ollie Marland and Hollywood Ending, to name a few.

The event was also joint headlined with Union J, where the night ended with possibly the most attractive band in pop – Lawson.

The band, consisting of Joel, Andy, Adam and Ryan burst onto the pop scene after gigging around the country and gaining a dedicated following of Geese (yes- the animal).

The band worked up the crowd with their high energy performance giving the venue an electric atmosphere. Fans were ecstatic to see the band after their time away from the spotlight to write their new material in which Front man, Andy Brown promises will be great.

Lawson make their performances look effortless, mixed with their great vocals and contagious personalities and stage presence just shows they belong on the stage, entertaining their adoring fans.

Lawson captivated the mainly teen female audience, with an array of their hits including, first single ‘When She Was Mine’, ‘Brokenhearted’ and ‘Learn to Love again’ mixed in with a surprise mash up cover of Swedish House Mafia’s – ‘Don’t You Worry Child’ and Flo Rida’s -‘Good Feeling’ which left the crowd wanting more.

The boys seemed stunned by the crowd reaction to their third single, Standing in the Dark, where they stopped and listened to the crowd sing the verse and chorus before continuing to play, showing their appreciation to the fans.

Unfortunately, their set list only consisted of 6 songs, which left us wanting more of Lawson.  The event felt a little rushed near the end as it was running over schedule meaning many had to leave early missing Lawson’s most recent single ‘Juliet’ which was a great ending to a great set.
