Michael Kiwanuka - I'm Getting Ready

When Michael Kiwanuka’s name first started getting bandied around as a genuine frontrunner for the BBC Sound poll, I’m Getting Ready was – for me – the song that really sold him as a winner. As with the rest of his material, it boasts his lovingly produced retro-soul formula but in this instance, the melodies really cut at their cleanest and the tender touches of guitar feel at their most warm. The result is a thing of real beauty that easily positions Kiwanuka as one of the most exciting new songwriting talents in the country. There’s no ‘getting ready’ about it, we’re already full-time believers in him.
