Won’t Last A Minute is the latest offering from Essex based indie-funk band Jump Stone. A song rumored to be about an ex girlfriend of one of the members running off with an older man, it is what I would dub a “funky diss-track.”

Despite the band only being a three piece, there are thick layers of vocal and instrumental harmony to fill out every space of the audio spectrum. This is a technique famously used by Jump Stone’s frontman, Harry Cash, who is also a producer in his own right.

As soon as I pressed play on “Won’t Last A Minute”, I was immediately pulled in with an ear worm of a guitar riff, closely followed by well thought out and (sometimes) funny lyrics. Harry’s smooth vocals sit comfortably on top of the strong rhythm provided by the  skill of Harrison Palmer (Bass) and Dan Rawley (Drums)

The track just builds at the right times and in all the right places, always leaving the listener wanting more before reaching a comfortable climax in the form of the chorus that is bound to give men, women, children and even animals satisfaction beyond belief!

For me, the mark of a great tune is when it sounds great on your car stereo and when its played live. I went along to Jump Stone’s launch event for this single at The Edge last weekend and can definitely say that this track ticks both of those boxes! The audience were up right at the front of the stage singing along to every word and THAT is when you know you’ve got a masterpiece on your hands.

Along with the single, the band threw in a music video which can be seen here:

Won’t Last A Minute is available on all platforms, I recommend that everyone goes out and grabs themselves a copy!

I for one am highly excited to see what Harry, Harrison and Dan have up their sleeves for future releases!
