Becky Hill, Sigala – Heaven On My Mind

“I expect a Sigala track to have an element of joy in there”

Tom: I briefly thought Sigala was going to cover a song from Jesus Christ, Superstar. That’s “Heaven On Their Minds”. This is, obviously now, different.

Tim: Yes, yes it is.

Tom: Anyway, Becky Hill’s off the first season of The Voice UK.

Tim: Oh yeah, forgot that about her. Nice how it hasn’t stood in her way, mind.

Tom: And I can’t help feeling this needs a bit more Sigala. To me, he’s always associated with Big Happy Summer Tracks, and this doesn’t quite hit that mark for me.

Tim: Hmm, that’s fair – recently he’s betting getting a bit Galantis-y in his style, and you’re right that this isn’t quite as upbeat as you’d expect from that.

Tom: There’s nothing actually wrong with this; it’s a more-than-competent dance track, and I don’t think it’d empty the floor in a club. But it feels like it’s missing something: I expect a Sigala track to have an element of joy in there, and this just seems like… a regular song. Any ideas why?

Tim: No, actually. And particularly once you’ve got the titular heaven in the lyrics, maybe you’d be right in expecting something higher pitched, with less dark intensity to it. As it is…yeah, doesn’t quite feel right.

    Gee, Tom. I don’t know. Look around you. What could possibly be going on in the world right now that could cause someone whose work is usually full of joy to struggle with tapping into that feeling? I certainly don’t have any ideas. I guess it’ll have to remain a mystery.
