This week, Charles Minett, our Product Design Director, shares his favourite album of the week - 'The Golden Age' by Woodkid.
"I first discovered Woodkid at a music festival in east London a few years back and with the spring of 2020 leaving the thought of many of outdoor listening a distant memory I have been returning to his debut and only album.
French creator Yoann Lemoine presents a simple bold but bold combination of fast paced drums, strings and vocals.
This album is a easy way to escape and is great way to stretch the capabilities of a powerful hi-fi systems, the louder you play it the better it gets!"
