Harry Styles sang in a British boy band named One Direction. I never listened. Never watched. Deplorable that boy band stuff. Just horrible-horrible synth-rabble that goes against every fiber of my ‘I need real music’ sensibilities. Not my thing. The WRONG direction.
Then I come across this release from his new solo album. Just a few seconds into Sign of the Times and I’m hooked. The young man can sing. I watch the video, various live performances and realize he’s doing the much-appreciated less is more version of performing – letting the live band share the stage as well. It’s a good band and as much as it surprises me to say it – Harry Styles is one hell of a singer.
There. I admitted. I like Harry Styles. Yeah, the guy who sang in One Direction.
Someone go check on hell. Pretty sure it has frozen over…
