The Christmassy-tinged song is a tender ballad written around the notion that princes and paupers, tyrants and saints, all feel love with as great a force as each other, “there’ll always be a stronger arm when push it shoves but there’ll never be a bigger love”. The original version of the song appeared on Eoin’s recent EP, Club Classic, however the current re-arranged cut brings a new warmth to an already gentle song.
Influenced by the great storytellers of modern music, from Bob Dylan to Dead Prez, Eoin’s songs have always been known for their insightful, thought provoking lyrics, but on the Club Classic EP he also took the opportunity to experiment with production styles and sounds that were new territory for him. He says, “I didn’t exactly reinvent the wheel, but for me personally it was a lot of fun stepping out of my own head for a while and asking ‘what would Prince do’”?
Having supported the likes of Joan Armatrading, The Darkness and Beth Orton and picked up praise from Ed Sheeran who tweeted Eoin to tell him he was “smashing it”, high praise indeed, it is certain Eoin’s star is on the rise.
