Never Give Up Josh Mid­dle­ton

People (South Africa) - - Off The Record -

FIF­TEEN-YEAR-OLD

Josh Mid­dle­ton made an im­pres­sive im­pact on the lo­cal pop space with the re­lease of his sin­gles Mon­ster and Gone and has now dropped his de­but al­bum Never Give Up, which is filled with 10 pop bangers. His uni­ver­sal ap­proach to the genre has made him a unique lo­cal act, and this al­bum is beau­ti­fully pro­duced. Josh ex­plores a va­ri­ety of grow­ing sub­gen­res; Mon­ster has a catchy EDM break while We’ll Be Talk­ing has a funky bass line that car­ries the song through. While

Josh may plays it a lit­tle too safe here, he gives a solid vo­cal per­for­mance and re­ally knows how to use his in­stru­ment. Never Give Up is a solid solo ef­fort and we’re ex­cited to see how the star pushes him­self with his next re­lease.
