4/5 STARS

In times gone by the four- or five- track EP was considered a marvellous device. Not quite but almost halfway to an LP, it gave cash-strapped young popsters twice as much music and a better ‘feel’ for what an artist was all about than a single.

Sunderland-born Antonio Lulic arrives with his third such pint-sized album but there is nothing cut-price or reduced about his music. As a singer and songwriter Lulic delivers at the highest level, leaving you wishing ‘Son’ was indeed a full-length long-player. His husky, soulful vocal and songs hewn from personal experience are immediately engaging and the impulse to press ‘repeat’ irresistible.

He hjoins a long line of great songsmiths that stretches from Springsteen and Sting through Bap Kennedy and Ben Glover. Emotional, gritty, personal and coming straight from the heart, he touches a universal nerve. The opening ‘Beckoning Drum’ reflects on the sense of trepidation mixed with expectation and excitement that young man experiences on the cusp of adulthood.

Elsewhere ‘The City of Austin, Texas’, a powerful lament for love lost, precedes songs that examine how the world tests us all (‘Twenty Twelve’ and ‘Drunk & Lonely’) while the concluding ‘When I Can’t’ is a moving, tenderly sung song of personal loss. - R2 Magazine

Bio

Born and raised in the North of England, son to a South American political exile, Antonio Lulic is a singer-songwriter whose powerful lyrical style combines with a rich, deep vocal tone and deft guitar expertise to deliver uniquely soulful, passionate and uplifting songs. Since the release of his debut EP, ‘Becomes Unstoppable‘, Antonio has toured relentlessly, imbuing his performance with a confidence and sureness unbecoming of his age.

Having showcased at the prestigious SXSW Music festival in Texas, and opened for Ed Sheeran on sold-out tours of the UK, USA and stadiums around South America, his concerts have drawn comparisons from Frank Turner to Bruce Springsteen, and earned him sudden and abundant support from thousands of fans across the globe.

With the release of his EP – Son – in 2015, BBC Radio 1 producer Thomas Coxhead named him ‘a simply incredible songwriter’ and R2 magazine claimed ‘Lulic delivers at the highest level – 4 out of 5 stars’. It hit number 12 in the iTunes Singer-Songwriter chart.

His forthcoming EP – Departures – coming March 2017, is his most eagerly anticipated yet, seeing him evolve from singer-songwriter into frontman, leading his band into rousing, jubilant, anthemic and political new territory.
