Seriously guys, look at that last name: it’s adorable! I’m sure it’s more than enough to make you a fan, but if, for some reason, you need further convincing, read on.

Snowman almost reminds me of a James Bond film theme (second one this week!), what with its use of arpeggios from the twangy electric guitar, but then it moves away from that during the chorus by introducing an organ. It also features the rather lovely, but mostly restrained vocals of Topley-Bird herself, though even that tends to break loose at times to feature her vocal range. Overall, it feels kind of twisted, but most certainly in a good way!
