Ocasan – When You’re Around * Single of the day * release date 2/5/2011

Any time a track starts off with a quite pulsing bassline and light vocalisation it's usually a good bet that it's about to explode and When You're Around does just that.

The story is of waking up (possibly with a hangover) and appreciating the person you're with through the mundane things that happen. It's the sort of lyric that I always feel adds a greater poignancy to a song and Chris Difford immediately springs to mind as a great exponent of this art.

Ocasan are Nick Burns, Rich Webb and Luke McDonnell, their début album is due out in August 2011.
