With the UK tour set continue in Bournemouth tomorrow night, this single doesn’t stray too far from the direction the band had been heading in prior to the loss of their frontman; squint and you can almost hear the echo of Meighan in Serge Pizzorno’s delivery, just as you could on parts of the guitarist and songwriter’s S.L.P. project of 2019.
“The promotional message has been that it’s wildly different from Kasabian but that’s not strictly true,” our review reads. “It’s very easy to imagine Tom Meighan on vocals for The Wu and on the marching doom of Soldiers 00018.”
“The same could be said for the first few minutes of Favourites, which builds and builds until it’s nearly chaotic before Little Simz brings some discipline and grace to proceedings. It’s beautiful alchemy and stands amongst Pizzorno’s best work.”
