The Tailormade – ‘Primrose Hill’

Already an up and coming favourite in the indie pop music circuit, The Tailormade served as the Radio 1 Breakfast Show house band having been head hunted for their ‘Secret Busker’ feature to perform with The Vamps and James Arthur. They have supported names such as Olly Murs, Louisa Johnson, CeeLo Green, Busted, Jess Glynne and Mullally as well as the legend that is Tom Jones and are now back with their second release of the year, another masterpiece, entitled ‘Primrose Hill.’

Although full of character and the cheeky charm that The Tailormade are becoming synonymous with, ‘Primrose Hill’ differs from the laddish magic of previous single ‘Mr. Perfect’ and feels much more personal in terms of its message. The music video that accompanies it, directed by Francesca Payne, is captivating and enthralling from start to finish, heart warming in its simplicity and yet so strong in its message, you simply don’t want it to end until you find out the whole story of each person’s account. It invites us to watch as passers-by tell nostalgic tales of love and heartbreak on a white board; tales you cannot help but relate to. That level of brilliance is what separates The Tailormade from any other music group; you can just feel them in their music, which is probably a key reason Boris Johnson crowned them as the ‘Best Buskers in London’. With their catchy hooks to the witty lyrics, their sound is nothing but beguiling.

Doing amazing things both in the studio and on the stage this year, The Tailormade have recently been confirmed to support Madness on their summer tour as well as hitting a number of festivals throughout the UK including BST with Michael Buble. This goes hand in hand with their recent flurry of support from platforms including Essentially Pop, Celeb Mix, Big Issue and the hugely popular live session purveyors, Sofar Sounds.
