Micky Diana – No Bells This Christmas

Such our instinctive aversion to Christmas songs it is almost a result to get our ears to just listen to such propositions. Occasionally something does slip through which catches the imagination, clicks with personal thoughts, and grabs increasingly eager ears. The new single from British singer songwriter Micky Diana is one of those rare persuasions; a song we can easily recommend you check out.

No Bells This Christmas comes off the successful back of Diana’s previous single Run With Me and it was through its highly enjoyable presence that he caught us in a moment of ‘weakness’ with the new track and thankfully he did. No Bells This Christmas is a melancholic reflection of the lack of sheen the holiday season has for a great many for whatever reasons. For the lonely, the love lost, and the desperate; all those going through the motions at a time of supposed love and joy just wishing it swiftly away, the song is an anthem which resonates but equally with Diana’s natural wit and skill with words brings a wry smile to the lips and imagination.

As shown by his previous track, the Londoner’s voice and delivery is organic captivation, a distinct invitation into his lyrical craft and both in full magnetism within No Bells For Christmas. The gait of his delivery is sharp and mischievous, a trait which also lines the song and blossoms in the accompanying video to the single.

Catchy from its first breath and increasingly so thereon in No Bells This Christmas is a song easy to remember and even simpler to enjoy. Maybe Christmas songs are not that bad after all…well until the next one tries to convince anyway.

No Bells This Christmas is out now.

Micky Diana – Run With Me

Run With Me is the richly enticing debut single from British singer songwriter Micky Diana, an artist who took his first steps as a teenager, primarily as an MC to Drum & Bass and Jungle music. His career since has seen the Crawley based Diana act alongside Sheridan Smith and Jamie Bell, perform in numerous plays, operas, and musicals such Whistle Down The Wind, Hamlet, and Phantom Of The Opera in the West End and globally further afield as well as becoming the lead backing vocalist for Hurts. All the while he has developed his songwriting, embracing contemporary styles to his already diverse experiences in music with a debut single an ear pleasing first result.

An atmospheric wash is instantly joined by the emotive melody of the piano and the quickly impressing tones of Diana as Run With Me envelops ears. As rhythms bring a slight but lively skittishness to the developing drama of keys and stringed suggestion, Diana reveals a varied textural appetite to his vocal delivery, crooning with a kaleidoscope air which just works.

There is theatre to sound and voice which equally grabs attention but one deliberately and organically controlled to keep things intimate and emotionally earthy. Looking at moments “where people felt they had no voice or were not allowed to have an opinion”, being inspired by the story about the bakery which refused to make a wedding cake for a gay couple soon to be married in N Ireland where he was at the time, Run With Me is a magnetic first look at Diana, one which makes ears want to hear more and intrigue eager to see how things develop ahead.

Run With Me is released September 15th
