Top Tracks: The Kondoors – Forgiveness

Sometimes the simplest songs can be the most powerful, partly because they rely on an artist’s ability to fill the empty space and in a sense create something from nothing. ‘Forgiveness’ is a perfect throwback to old-school soul in the vein of Otis Redding or Aretha Franklin, a time of larger-than-life voices and people putting every ounce of their being into each song. This sublime soulful duo have produced a track that could have been one of the Motown hit-factory’s biggest sellers in another life. Jess Greenfield & Gavin Conder’s heartwarming harmonies just make your hair stand on end. They simply don’t make them like this anymore, which makes songs like this all the more special. The Kondoors have rekindled the golden age of soul with stunning single, and I think we could all do with a bit of ‘Forgiveness’ to brighten our days.
