7digital What we said: Though born in the same year as Taylor Swift, 25-year-old Texan Leon Bridges could almost have been beamed in from a bygone era. Kitted out in sharp-tailoring and exuding old-fashioned, matinee idol charm, the former gospel singer effortlessly distills all the smooth soulfulness of Sam Cooke and Ben E King into his misty-eyed melodies. There’s some seriously strong songwriting on display here too, and the tracks are beautifully arranged, flecked with Hammond organ and punctuated by swing beats and the warm rumble of double bass. The result is a debut deferential enough to make rhythm and blues aficionados nostalgic, but with enough originality and verve to entice younger fans.
