Leon Marshall returns to Alternative Fruit with another new single. This BBC airtime club-member and semi-finalist of the UK Songwriting Contest is soaring right now. The last few months have seen huge amounts of radio-play and an expressive career flourishing all the time. This new track is called Better Man and was written after an argument with a woman that saw her throwing the contents of a refrigerator at our music star! It's never cool to do this, no matter what temperature the objects are. However, what was cool was the way Leon handled it. He wrote a song, one that's good enough to get on the radio and establish his musical path even further.
It begins with a smooth upbeat guitar phrase. Metallic chords strum a heart-warming tune while Leon Marshall sings about how he messed up. Well, if it was me I'd have shown her the door. No-one throws things at me and gets my love. However, Leon perhaps has low self-esteem and is happy to take someone's toxicity. Who knows? There I was thinking he was going to tell his abuser where to catch the bus but it seems I was wrong. I kinda lost respect for this guy after hearing this song but then I feel sorry for him too. Maybe he has Stockholm Syndrome. Then again, if someone said something so hurtful to me that I wanted to throw things at them, it's when I'd say goodbye.
