Review: Loyal Trooper – The Doctor

By on Sunday, 7th June 2009 at 12:00 pm
 

Over the past few weeks I’ve written a lot about Loyal Trooper here at TGTF. Andy Walker is an incredibly talented guy who just seems to have a way with words and determination that if all is right with this world should get him places.

His forthcoming single, The Doctor, is out tomorrow (Monday 8th June). It’s a sad story of a difficult friendship, and one that is possibly his saddest song yet. It could easily soundtrack a break up montage in your favourite rom-com, with lyrics full of guilt following Andy “from the bar to the club and home to sleep”. Certainly not one to listen to when you’re feeling a bit down, but that’s not to mean it’s bad, oh no. A bit like R.E.M.’s “Everybody Hurts”, it has moments you have to admire the beauty of it.

Haven’t come across Loyal Trooper before? Read our introduction to Andy’s music, our interview and his tour diary (part 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5). Also, download some free music from him below:
