Song of the Week: Budapest - George Ezra

11 August 2014


The world is hot off the shoulders of 21 year old George Ezra's hit track Budapest. It became the soundtrack to the first month in our new Uni house, so I downloaded his album Wanted On Voyage, just in time for summer. The highlight, and this week's #SOTW is Cassy O'. Cassy O' has the same chilled, acoustic vibes, with it's catchy lyrics and a driving, guitar-led beat. The singer-songwriter, born George Ezra Barnett, cites Bob Dylan and Woody Guthrie as influences to his bluesy style. 

Album Wanted On Voyage was released at the end of June, and peaked at number 3 in the UK album chart. On the album you will find tracks along the same line as Budapest and Cassy O', mellow and acoustic. It's the perfect soundtrack to summer if you enjoy artists such as Ben Howard, Mumford and Sons and Tom Odell, the latter of whom Ezra supported on tour.
