“Living, Set Fire” has a lyric-dominant compositional style that harks back to the days of Elton John and Bernie Taupin. But this is no throw-back or nostalgia trip — this is vibrant, fresh and unique-sounding. The accompaniment is minimal and the singer gets close and intimate as he sings lines such as, “My life is set out for convenience of others/Make a note of my living, set fire”.
