Elrichman – Cop on a horse

Toronto based singer songwriter Paul Elrichman announces his new album Heaven’s Mayor out 24th April via Show Your Bones records, with the release of the first single Cop On A Horse. Its a wonky upbeat number dubbed by Erlichman as sounding like a country song set in a modern environment. Rough

Opening with sweeping violins the main theme wrought out with stabby finger picking and rough strumming which works well with his sweet voice in the range of Edwin Collins. It’s a song about a cop on a horse but also a reflection on modern life and our dependant love on technology opening line “Cop on a horse. Texting” sets the nonsense narrative up of a cop a horse and a phone. It features a wonderful string arrangement to close what is a folky nonsense delight.

Heaven’s Mayor will be the follow-up to 2014’s Young, Healthy and Wonderful with a run of North American dates expected to follow the album release on 24th April.
