‘They say I am up and coming like I am fucking in an elevator’, is one line out of Ed Sheeran’s single ‘You Need Me, I Don’t Need You’ that demonstrates the intelligent wit that is a running theme throughout Sheeran’s music. I have become increasingly intrigued with Sheeran over the past year and can now say I am a fan of his music. The primary reasons being his layered lyrical content, unconventional writing structure and for the best reason as he says “he is not a product of any genre“. You can hear nuances of indie, acoustic soul, hip hop and grime in Sheeran’s music and that, for me, it is what makes Sheeran so exciting. Check out the video after the jump.
