New Release: Lawson - When She Was Mine

May 28, 2012 Critic Jonni 2 Comments

Lawson is all everyone is talking about, they are here, there and everywhere and people just can't get enough of them. They are having great feedback from YouTube comments, and have already charted high on the iTunes chart at number 8, and it's only been out for a day! They are being compared to 'The Script', which is extremely understandable, and I can see them going far and maybe a number one some time in the future... They are a four-piece pop/rock band consisting of Andy Brown, Adam Pitts, Joel Peat and Ryan Fletcher. Andy Brown has been in the music industry before in a band called 'Avenue' who also consisted of Max George, who is now in 'The Wanted'. They were formerly known as 'The Grove'.

"When She Was Mine" was written by Andy Brown. His inspiration for the song comes from Mollie King from The Saturdays. Mollie and Andy used to go out, but recently split and Andy Brown apparently wrote a few songs about the split, and this was one of them. Mollie King is in total support of the song, and she was urging people on Facebook to download the single. I love it when bands write their own songs as you can tell they really mean everything they are singing. And it's sometimes one of the main reasons why it is so good.

This music video has everything you need. There is both a narrative and a performance, which most music videos have started to do. They also tend to get my 5 stars, as you can rarely find better. I am sure I've seen the girl before, but not sure where from, she is played by Angelica Lynne (thank you anonymous commenter) and she has starred in quite a few music videos, but she has done theatre and modelling.

This music video is cleanly cut and interesting to watch. It's one of those videos that you can watch over and over again and see something new that you hadn't seen the previous time. I'd never get bored of it, and I love the storyline, and how at the end she doesn't answer his call. It's a nice representation of the song, and I don't think any other music video would have done this song justice.

Overall, a very catchy song that you can't help but love. The accompanying music video is great too, however there's a few parts where you are blinded by the sunlight, and some of the camera shots aren't that great either. Having said that though, it definitely will not affect the charting position this Sunday. And I'm super excited to see where this will chart. I can see this band going places!
