Assimilating the world around him cereal-loving Niall Gavin makes music that is defined by being young and carefree. Just one listen will have you longing for the days when you had nothing to do but watch cartoons. His half rapping, half singing vocals laid over fuzzy psychedelic guitars shows a wide range of influences from old school hip hop to skate culture and shoegaze. The West Londoner has released tracks including ‘Cadillac Girl’ and ‘Backseat Kisses’ over the last year which have caught the attention of various music sites and magazines. Having just played his first live show in December, Only Real is an artist coming to into his own reminding us all that despite our age, you can still be young at heart. Latest single ‘Blood Carpet’ is out now.
