Only Real is somewhat like child in the body of a talented 22-year-old. He bathes in cereal, edits pictures of himself onto dogs and his latest video is like a massive merging of cartoons and reality.
The debut album by Only Real is released on March 30th, and it’s safe to say that ‘Jerk At the End of the Line’ is pretty anticipated. This South Londoner, lesser known as Niall Galvin, woos with a distinct indie/rap genre crossover – slightly mutant, slightly the best thing you’ve ever heard. New track ‘Can’t Get Happy’ is breezily contagious, with a rather contradictory title. I dare you try and not get happy.
