Hozier has been on my radar ever since he released Take Me to Church, which instantly and deservedly took him mainstream. But until recently, I’d gravitated away from pop/alt-pop, and so I wasn’t really aware of this album but for the big single, Movement, until a friend of mine played No Plan for me.
I mean, it’s not revolutionary or anything, but I just absolutely adore the way Hozier puts these tracks together, especially No Plan and Movement. There’s something so empowering and moving about his soulful vocals, I can barely come up with words to describe it.
